Where’s Bert Parks When We Need Him? Oh, That’s Right….

On Thursday night, 14 women who survived the horrors of World War II walked down a pageant runway in Israel hoping to win the title as the first “Miss Holocaust Survivor.” The entrants were judged on their account of surviving Nazi ghettos and concentration camps, their later contributions to their communities, and yes, physical appearance, though promoters said that only accounted for “10 percent” of the scoring. Seventy-eight year-old Hava Hershkovitz won, receiving flowers and a sparkling tiara. She hopes to do well when she competes against Miss Bosnian Serb Ethnic Cleansing and Miss Rwanda Genocide at the upcoming Miss Ethnic Disaster Pageant.
