Team Mildenhall members moved by Holocaust survivor story

U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Henry Close, 100th Air Refueling Wing chaplain, talks to Zigi Shipper, a Holocaust survivor, during a question and answer session April 30, 2014, in the base chapel on RAF Mildenhall, England. Shipper was born to Orthodox Jewish parents in Poland in 1930 and spent many years in ghettos and concentration camps during World War II. When he was five years old his parents divorced but because they were Orthodox Jews and divorce was frowned upon, he was told that his mother had died. Following the liberation of the concentration camp in May 1945, Shipper was saved by British soldiers. After surviving a near-death illness, Shipper was reunited with his mother, who was living in England. Shipper now lives in Hertfordshire and regularly shares his testimony in schools across the country. (U.S. Air Force photo by Gina Randall/Released)
