#BICPICTURE: A pageant for Israel's female Holocaust survivors


A pageant exclusively for Holocaust survivors -- they call it 'Beauty Heroines'. Shoshana Reshef -- 82 years young -- is one of 70 women getting pampered for a beauty pageant. But it's not any old beauty pageant, the idea is to spoil the women, all of whom are holocaust survivors. The women are being celebrated on Israel's 70 year anniversary.
