Here is the sub-headline:
Cecylia Roszak was thought to be the oldest nun in the world; poet Abba Kovner was one those she and her sisters saved at a local convent
From The Times of Israel, by Reporter Stuart Weiner, 21 November 2018.
Here is the lede plus five:
A Polish Catholic nun who was honored by Israel for helping to hide Jewish would-be resistance fighters in her convent during World War II died last week aged 110.
Among those who hid in the small convent of nine Dominican nuns during the war was poet and activist Abba Kovner, who in 1942 circulated among the Vilna Ghetto residents a manifesto, titled “Let us not go like lambs to the slaughter,” that warned of Nazi Germany’s plans to wipe out the Jews of Europe. It marked the first time a victim of the Holocaust had sounded the alarm over what was happening to the Jewish population and called for rebellion against the Nazis.
Cecylia Roszak was believed to be the oldest nun in the world when she passed away in the Dominican convent in the city of Krakow, the archdiocese of Krakow in Poland said last Friday in announcing her death.
