Kindness-In-Action: What Else Could My Grandma Do?

Kindness-in-action! My grandmother is being honored posthumously for her selfless, brave choice to help Jewish men and women escape the horrors of the Nazis during ‪#‎WWII‬.
As a young, single mother with a fourth-grade education in the poorest neighborhood of Budapest, Hungary, my grandmother did what others with much greater means would not. She risked everything to help others because she knew no other way to be except, to be ‪#‎kind‬.

Love your proud granddaughter, Nancika
