Holocaust Survivor Gets a Drive-By Parade for His 100th Birthday


A Holocaust survivor celebrated his 100th birthday in Texas with a drive-by parade. Heinz Wallach wasn't able to have a typical party with his family due to the coronavirus pandemic so his daughter, Tamar Leventhal, helped put this idea together.

"I'm speechless," Wallach told the news station as cars drove by his home. "This is unbelievable, and I have to take this in my mind."

Leventhal said the party took two weeks to plan and even had some help from the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum.

"I've been emotional the last two weeks putting it all together and realizing how many people love my father," she told KTVT.

According to KTVT, Wallach was born in Kassel, Germany in 1920 and saw his home destroyed by Nazis who attacked Jewish communities and businesses.
