Gidali, Marika - still image [media]

"The fact that her daughter was dancing in Germany was not the dream of a Jewish matriarch who had saved her children, like a lioness, from the hands of the Nazis. …" Marika Gidali said after being invited to dance in the Cologne Opera. The Romanian-born dancer and her family were confined to the ghetto of Budapest during the years of World War II before finally gaining entry to Brazil in 1946.
