First Runner Up – A successful rescue during World War II – I92


These three drawings tell about Regina Zimet’s story. She was a German-Jewish child who ran away with her parents from Nazi Germany. In my drawings I told about the escape, the Italian shelter (thanks to a family from Sondrio) and, at last, the salvation.
