In 1988 he returned with this wife to Brody and Suchowala, where he succeeded in finding Julia Symchuck, who, as a young girl, had warned his father that the Gestapo was looking for him, and whose family had hidden the Friedmans in their loft. The following year he was able to bring Julia to Seattle for a triumphal visit, where she was honored in many ways, although, as Friedman writes, "in her own country she had never been honored with anything except hard work.""--Jacket."@en ;
