Israel crowns 93-year-old as ‘Miss Holocaust Survivor

A 93-year-old great-grandmother was crowned “Miss Holocaust Survivor” in an annual Israeli beauty pageant designed to put a smile on women who endured the horrors of the Nazi genocide. A dozen contestants cautiously trod the catwalk at times assisted in the city of Haifa, with hair coiffed, make-up applied and sashes adorning their dresses. Several generations of relatives, along with well-wishers, cheered and snapped pictures, underscoring the organisers’ message that the contest bestows glamour and honour on the dwindling number of those whose youth was stolen in wartime Europe but who went on to build new lives for themselves in Israel.
