    If there's one thing Sara Ginaite-Rubinson, 85. is adamant about, it's that she is not a hero. As a Holocaust survivor and part of an anti-Nazi resistant group, she's often classified as a hero.

    “I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” – Elie Wiesel (born September 30, 1928), a Hungarian-born Jewish-American writer, professor, political activist, Nobel Laureate, and Holocaust survivor.

    This is maybe one of the most powerful pictures I have ever seen. The numbers on the arms are from prisoners of Nazi concentration camps.

    Whenever I hear a someone make a crack about women and science or something like that, I like to imagine the ghost of someone like Rita might materialize long enough to smack the ever-loving heck out of them. How many examples of strong, independent and intelligent women do you need? Geeze.
