Twins reunited after 70 years apart

A pair of twins, separated at birth at the end of World War Two, have been reunited after almost 70 years apart.

George Skrzynecky and Lucian Poznanski, 69, were born in Germany after their Polish mother was sent to a forced labour camp.

When she became ill and could not look after them the twins were taken to Poland and adopted separately. For many years they did not know each other existed.

After a successful search last year through the Red Cross Restoring Family Links Programme they finally met in Poland.

Reporter Dan Johnson from the Victoria Derbyshire programme was there.

Producer: Jonathan Josephs.
