November 15, 2015 9:51pm I have never seen a photo like this beautiful woman with so many lists, comments and tags of heartfelt praise, and I can see why. I would love to see this as an oil painting (which I can totally imagine) hanging in an important museum. I get a feeling of German or Dutch ancestry, someone who remembers the horrors of the War and soaking in all of those memories and knowledge into her life now. I've viewed this photo many times, and each time it has such a profound meaning to me.
