Writers at Israel Hayom share more details about the 93-year-old who was crowned “Miss Holocaust Survivor” recently in Israel. This annual event hopes to reach out to the women who’ve gone through the horrors of the Holocaust, giving them a reason to smile.
“I'm very happy. It's something special,” said the new Miss Holocaust Survivor, Polish-born Tova Ringer, who lost her parents, four sisters and a grandmother at the Auschwitz death camp.
“I don't have words for the people working here. They gave so much ... heart for us,” she told Reuters.
“I wouldn't believe that at my age I would be a beauty,” the former jeweler laughed, her tiara perched on her white hair.
