Lesia Cartelli - The Many Faces of Resilience

PEOPLE's Hero of the Week
Founder, Angel Faces

"When Lesia Cartelli was 9 years old, she was severely burned in a gas explosion at her grandparents’ home in East Detroit.

She’d been playing in the basement with her cousin when the gas leak ignited, blasting many of the nine family members who were inside the house across the street. Cartelli, who was buried in rubble, climbed out of the destruction on her own, crawling outside to roll in the dirt and snow to put out the flames on her small body." Read her full story on PEOPLE

Edith Eger - The Choice: Embrace the Possible

Auschwitz Survivor

Edith Eger was sixteen years old when the Nazis came to her hometown in Hungary and took her Jewish family to an interment center and then to Auschwitz. Her parents were sent to the gas chamber by Joseph Mengele soon after they arrived at the camp. Hours later Mengele demanded that Edie dance a waltz to “The Blue Danube” and rewarded her with a loaf of bread that she shared with her fellow prisoners. These women later helped save Edie’s life. Edie and her sister survived Auschwitz, were transferred to the Mauthausen and Gunskirchen camps in Austria, and managed to live until the American troops liberated the camps in 1945 and found Edie in a pile of dying bodies...
