Celebrating resilience: Margot Friedländer’s story

VOGUE Germany has made a departure from its traditional cover stars with its latest issue, featuring the extraordinary Margot Friedländer, a 102-year-old Holocaust survivor. Clad in a sleek red peacoat from Miu Miu, she graces the July/August edition not only with timeless elegance but also with a profound story of resilience.


Anna Wintour Applauds: A Historic Cover Star Shines Bright

Anna Wintour, Vogue’s influential editor-in-chief, applauded the choice of Friedländer as ‘brilliant and inspiring,’ particularly in today’s turbulent political climate. Her cover feature not only challenges conventional beauty standards but also serves as a powerful reminder of resilience and the enduring fight against hatred and antisemitism.


A Legacy of Courage: Margot Friedländer s Holocaust Survival Story

Friedländer’s life story is a testament to survival against all odds. Her journey intertwines with the heartbreaking fate of her mother and younger brother, whose lives were tragically cut short during the Holocaust. In a desperate bid to protect her family, Friedländer s mother confronted the Gestapo, a courageous act that ultimately led to their deportation to Auschwitz. Despite her efforts, both her mother and brother perished in the camp.


Friedländer narrowly escaped capture, hiding her identity with a dyed bob and a cross necklace. Now residing in Berlin, she has dedicated her later years to Holocaust education, speaking passionately at schools across Germany about the dangers of forgetting history’s lessons.


Margot Friedländer s Inspirational Journey

The accompanying interview in Vogue Germany highlights Friedländer’s unwavering commitment to keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive, urging younger generations to confront past traumas and build a better future. Despite enduring unimaginable loss, Friedländer’s warmth and optimism shine through, encapsulated in her words: ‘I am grateful. Grateful that I made it. For being able to fulfil my mother’s wish. That I have made my life.’
