Izak Szewelwicz was born in the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp in 1945 and sent for adoption in Israel. Decades ago, Izak found and formed a relationship with his birth mother, but was told that his father had died in the war. In 2013, everything he knew changed when he tracked down his adoption files and uncovered that his father was alive after the war and divorced his mother. Seeking more answers, Izak located his birth certificate in Germany. He was shocked to discover another birth certificate—one of a brother he never knew existed.
