A mom who goes by the name of 'The Orange Rhino' quit yelling at her kids (four young boys) for an entire year and the project is still going. Needless to say, we tip our virtual hats to her! And here's what she has learned.
Mother Marie Skobtzova. Russian Orthodox Nun in France who helped Jews during the Holocaust. In July 1942 the Nazis rounded up thousands of Jews for deportation. Mother Maria managed to enter the stadium where they were being held, and with the help of garbage collectors, smuggled out several children in garbage bins. The Nazis soon warned her to stop helping Jews, but she did not listen. Mother Maria was arrested in February 1943 and sent to concentration camps, where she perished.
