The Fellowship | October 15, 2018
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.
