FARGO — The day before Miss North Dakota 2018 Katie Olson flew off last week to compete at this year's Miss America pageant was filled with tying up loose ends — literally.

Less than one month earlier, another young European man came to town under much different circumstances. He was fleeing the Nazis, leaving his parents behind and hoping to start a new life in a place where he knew almost no one.

Four men dressed in matching grey T-shirts get out of the vehicles and walk carefully and silently past rows of tombstones.
