Haifa is about to witness probably the most peculiar beauty competition. Women who are the Holocaust survivors and live in Israel are preparing for a show to the rhythm of a Bee Gees’ disco song from the musical Staying Alive (1983). Each of the women has her own motivation and explanation for her participation in the competition: for some, it is a way of dealing with the trauma, for others, an unique form of propagating the memory of war crimes, especially among the youth.
