Beautiful inside and out. I can't even begin to imagine what bravery such acts must have taken.
I love that you're posting these stories. It's important to honor those who perished and say their names, but it's uplifting to read about those few righteous souls who stood against such evil.
Another very brave soul
She is a hero. She risked her life to save others from being murdered, tortured and starved to death. Historians and future generations will remember her with admiration and love in their hearts for what she accomplished.
Unreal. What a hero and selfless soul.
Now thats a beautiful story. Sofka, you are a true hero. More people should know about you.
Amazing story, Keep trying and never give up.
