Women vie for the honour of being crowned Israel's first 'Miss Holocaust Survivor'
The women, ranging in age from 74 to 97, appeared to be enjoying themselves.
Wearing black dresses, earrings and necklaces, and sporting blue-and-white numbered sashes, they grinned and waved as they were introduced to the audience.
Music played as the contestants walked along a red carpet, introduced themselves and described their memories of World War II.
Esther Libber, a 74-year-old runner-up who fled her home in Poland as a child, hid in a forest and was rescued by a Polish woman, said the event was a great showcase of life:
'I have the privilege to show the world that Hitler wanted to exterminate us and we are alive.
'We are also enjoying life. Thank God it's that way.'
A four-judge panel consisting of three former beauty queens and a geriatric psychiatrist who specializes in treating Holocaust survivors chose the winner.
Hava Hershkovitz, a soon-to-be 79-year-old, who won the event, spoke of her joy:
'This place is full of survivors. It puts us at the center of attention so people will care. It's not easy at this age to be in a beauty contest, but we're all doing it to show that we're still here.'Wow, just...wow. I am at a loss for words. *** Women vie for the honour of being... more

A retrial has been ordered for an appeals court case in Gothenburg, Sweden, after the presiding judge fell asleep during proceedings, lawyers said.
“It is (a) very important aspect of the legal process that the person trying the district court decision is present,” said prosecutor Margareta Esplund.
The judge, whose name was not reported, maintains he did not fall asleep during the trial but has nonetheless agreed to no longer preside over the case, Swedish news agency TT reported Saturday.
Esplund said all the signs of someone falling asleep were witnessed in court that day.
“Normally when a person falls asleep there are certain indications of this — you start by closing your eyes and then the head falls forward … followed by jerking movements as you pull yourself together,” she said.

A cat descended a 30- to 40-foot Saguaro cactus in Arizona after being stuck on top of it for three days.
The cat, black with white markings, apparently became stuck on top of the cactus in a desert area near Saguaro Lake, KNVX-TV, Phoenix, reported Friday.
A witness said he first saw the cat there three days before it came down.
Slowly but surely, the cat started to climb down Friday, starting face-first before turning around and backing its way down. Near the bottom, it leaped off the cactus, making a safe landing.
The feline was seen wandering in the area after news crews left the scene.

It's that time of year again: The McRib magically reappears at McDonald's for a few weeks . . . only to be snatched away before Thanksgiving.
So here's a dilemma. Do you want to enjoy your few weeks of eating McRibs in blissful ignorance . . . or do you want to go behind the curtain and hear what the actual ingredients are?
If you don't want to know, cover your ears for about 45 seconds . . . NOW.
Chemicals. There are about 70 ingredients involved . . . 34 of which are in the bun. Most of those are chemicals used for who knows what. But one is azodicarbonamide, which bleaches flour and is also used to make gym mats.
Pig scraps. The McRib is assembled from pieces of pig like the heart and stomach. Those are cooked together and blended into a substance that IS pig . . . at least technically.
Lots of salt. Salt is used for flavoring . . . and to extract proteins from the meat which help basically GLUE the stray pig parts together.
No bones at all. You'll never have to worry about finding a rib bone or any other bone in your McRib . . . just because it's pressed to LOOK like ribs doesn't mean there are actually any ribs inside.

They said their goodbyes and he boarded a bus. But it wasn't REALLY to a family event . . . he was actually meeting his mistress at a nearby hotel.
