Today’s face of the day is a face from the past.
The face of a woman who survived the Holocaust and is still alive today. Her story is so bizarre that it is hard to believe that it is fact not fiction as the irony of what happened is just incredible.
An 80-year-old Jewish woman has revealed the astonishing story of how she came to front a Nazi party propaganda campaign in the 1930s after her baby picture was selected by the party as the “ideal Aryan” child.
Aryan:Â In colloquial English, the word has been adopted in accordance with Nazi racial theory’s appropriation of the term to describe persons corresponding to the “Nordic” physical ideal of Nazi Germany (the “master race” ideology).[n 1]
