A Story About the Most Resilient Woman I Know — My Nana, Sonja

This photo of my Nana was taken in 1942. She was 11 years old.

I normally do shout outs to all my founder friends on International Woman’s Day, but not today.

Sonja and her mother travelled all over Germany inside a cattle truck on the railway. They had no idea where they were going. No one wanted them. It was frightening.

The screaming in the village was unbearable. There was no food to eat. Sonja and her family were starving daily. They practically lived off nettle soup. Nettles galore! Sonja was sick of nettles, but they kept her alive.
