A photograph showing a 93-year-old Holocaust survivor receiving his first Covid jab in the arm bearing his Auschwitz tattoo has gone viral.

Herschel Herskovic, who has survived the concentration camp, a death march and recently contracted Covid 19, was vaccinated by young British army medic, Private Maddy Oliver.

The picture was taken by Herschel’s son David. The tweet has been liked more than 16,000 times and bears the caption:

From Darkness to Light – Private Maddy Oliver vaccinating my father in the same arm where 76 years earlier his Auchwitz number was tattooed.

וְגָאַלְתִּי אֶתְכֶם בִּזְרוֹעַ נְטוּיָה

“And I will redeem you with an outstretched arm”

David said in a follow up tweet: “my father and our family have been immensely touched by the incredible goodwill and hope inspired by this simple photo that crosses generations and cultures and brings us together as humans.”
