Holocaust survivor who escaped synagogue massacre dies
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Judah Samet, a Holocaust survivor who narrowly escaped a shooting rampage at a Pittsburgh synagogue in 2018, died Tuesday. He was 84.
Samet, who survived the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in World War II, was running a few minutes late for services at the Tree of Life of Life synagogue and was just pulling into a handicapped spot when a man told him there was gunfire inside. Samet saw an officer exchange fire with the assailant. Eleven people were killed in the deadliest attack on Jewish people in U.S. history.
