In the city of Haifa, in northern Israel, a nursing home for Holocaust survivors holds a yearly beauty pageant for the women tenants. Some local voices have criticized this event for creating a connection between the chauvinistic custom of a beauty pageant to the memory of the Holocaust.

However, when I met the fourteen candidates, aged between 73 and 89, who were young girls during the Holocaust, I met strong, beautiful and inspirational women.
