Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz during the Holocaust. She was ordered to report every pregnant woman to the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would use them in cruel experiments like vivisections before killing them. She would give them abortions before he found out to save them from this fate. After being rescued from the camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.
Give Claire a medal! Tim Henman leads calls for organisers to reward paralysed marathon ace who finished Marathon in 16 days... as she raises £130,000 for charity
Claire Lomas crossing the finish line - Virgin London Marathon, May 8, 2012. Paralyzed from the waist down since a horse riding fall in 2007, she took 16 days to complete the 26 mile route. Averaging 2 miles/day with the help of a bionic ReWalk suit, she earned 150 thousand dollars for spinal cord research. Because she has no use of her legs, she had to steady herself with crutches and consciously will every single step she took. Photo by David Parker
