The fortitude and indomitable spirit of Holocaust survivors was celebrated with words of awe and wonder during a luncheon tribute at Shang Chai Restaurant.
Borough victims of the Nazi horrors of World War II were feted by Rep. Ed Towns during a full course meal at the dining establishment, 2189 Flatbush Avenue.
Also in attendance were spiritual leaders and officials from the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty and the Canarsie Jewish Community Council.
Both groups helped coordinate the laudation.
