Ben Cohen recounted the incredible story of how his grandmother, Judy Meisel, survived Stutthof Concentration Camp and escaped Nazi-occupied Europe. More than 70 years later, Ben found himself face-to-face with one of the Nazi guards from Stutthof as a witness in the ongoing pursuit of justice. 

Judy also received the 2018 FBI Director's Community Leadership Award.
