Jeannine Burk’s Mother

Sarah Bluman Rafalowicz defied the Gestapo, saving her daughter Augusta and herself from deportation to a concentration camp. She and her three children survived the Holocaust in hiding. In 1950, at age 45 she died of breast cancer. She was already ill when this portrait was taken.
