Aviva's Shawl

I think the story behind Aviva's Shawl is really moving.

Erika is an older lady, a holocaust survivor who had been sheltered by a family during the war. The lady that saved her also taught her how to knit and crochet.

Many years later, Aviva met Erika while working as a volunteer in Cafe Europa where she provided emotional support for survivors of the holocaust. Erika in return offered to teach Aviva how to crochet, this is the beautiful Shawl Aviva made!
