Hero: Ata Kandó


Leo took this picture of his friend and colleague photographer Ata Kandó in her home in Bergen, Noord Holland in 2011. Ata was born in 1913 and is a living legend. She is not only a great photographer but also a holder of the Righteous Among the Nations medal of Yad Vashem in Jerusalem for her brave resistance work in Hungary in WO-II.
