Holocaust Survivors Rock The Runway In Israel Beauty Pageant
It's an event intended to recognize these women and offer respect for what they underwent.

“Tonight we’re letting some women who survived the Holocaust have something that was robbed from them in their youth,” said David Parsons of the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem, a sponsor of the Helping Hand group which organized the event. “We want to give something back to them tonight it’s for them to enjoy.”

Walking along to tunes like “Pretty Woman,” the participants included German-born Malka Gorka, 73, who came to Israel in 1948 with her parents and Hungarian-born Carmela Ben Yehuda, 89, who arrived in British-run Palestine in 1945 after surviving the Nazi German Auschwitz death camp.”

“Holocaust survivor, Carmela Ben Yehuda, 89, dances during the annual Holocaust survivors’ beauty pageant in the Israeli city of Haifa October 30, 2016. “

“Holocaust survivor, Malka Gurka, 73, walks down a red carpet during the annual Holocaust survivors’ beauty pageant in the Israeli city of Haifa October 30, 2016. “

“Some contestants are reflected in a marble column during the annual Holocaust survivors’ beauty pageant in the Israeli city of Haifa October 30, 2016. “

“Holocaust survivor Anna Grinis, 75, celebrates after winning the annual Holocaust survivors’ beauty pageant in the Israeli city of Haifa October 30, 2016. Sara Netanyahu, wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, stands next to Grinis.“


Good story and I’m so happy they got to do this.
