This Russian princess lived a life full of upheaval and tragedy. When she found herself in Paris during the German occupation, she was taken to a Nazi internment camp. At one point in her stay, hundreds of Jews arrived. Out of fear they would eventually be taken to a death camp, she wrote all their names on pieces of paper and rolled them up into cigarette boxes, sending them to England for help. But help never came. For her efforts to save hundreds, and for her success in saving one Jewish baby, she was awarded a Righteous Among Nations by Nad Vashen.
This 8x10" print with archival paper and inks is mailed in a cellophane sleeve with chip board backing to prevent bending, and a paragraph about her story. Watermark will not remain on high quality print.
The women in my “Heroes & Strangers” portrait series were selected because of their courage and bravery during World War II. There are thousands of stories like theirs; ordinary men and women being extraordinary lights during dark times.
To the faces of their rescued, they are heroes. To most of us, just generations apart, they are strangers at worst, forgotten at best.
My hope is that those who see these portraits memorize their names, know their faces, and are inspired by their stories to find courage for these present times.
