Pageant for Holocaust Survivors in Israel Concludes

| No Comments

An organization in Israel concluded a pageant for Holocaust survivors Thursday where 14 women told their survival stories to an audience of around 500, the New York Times reported.

The competition has been thought of as exploitation by a group of 54 Holocaust survivors' organizations. Others found it "trivializing" and controversial, the New York Times reported.

Around 300 women registered to be a part of the competition. The winner, Hava Hershkovitz, said so many women participated because they wanted "to show that we're still here," the Star Tribune reported
