Celebrating Life

A very special event is coming up in Haifa. There will be a beauty pageant – for Holocaust survivors.

Yes, you read that right. Each contestant will enter the stage and share her story, and at the end one will be crowned.

I smiled when I first read the story, and then I found myself tearing up. The combination of a tragic past and the full embrace of life in spite of it, is very moving to me.
