Becoming a great-grandmother is special for anyone, Londoner-by-choice Lily Ebert told the British news agency PA in view of her family's latest offspring. But for her, as a Holocaust survivor , it is all the more special, she said. "I never thought I would achieve this. I had to survive first of all and then to achieve this age… (the Nazis) wanted to kill us and we showed (them) that they could not," British media reported her as saying. "Babies are the best revenge against the Nazis," Ebert said in a statement posted on Twitter by her great-grandson, Dov Forman. The Holocaust survivor recently welcomed her 35th grandchild.

Patricia Blythe only learned that she had a younger sister after a chance comment from an aunt, made when she was already a grown woman in her thirties. Her aunt, who was a mum of six, had been relaying a story about Patricia's birth mother, who had enquired as to when she was going to stop having children. In response, she'd given the following cutting reply: "When you stop giving yours away". Patricia had been taken aback by this retort and asked her what exactly she meant by it. It was then that the aunt revealed that Patricia had a younger sister - Sheila - who'd been adopted into a 'well-to-do family'. Having dropped this earth-shattering information into Patricia's life, the conversation was quickly set aside and never revisited again.

As if any grown woman would suddenly look at Donatella and shriek, "I got it all wrong; all this time that I have been dining out in grey cashmere I could have been flaunting inappropriate bits of flesh and squeezing myself into too-tight nylon micro skirts. Nigel - throw out that Next catalogue; I must have a boob tube else I shall expire." Of course it would never happen; for this is the function of Donatella; a sartorial caveat to grow old gracefully. Or one would have thought so, anyway. But curious things are afoot in the world of mature female celebrities and bit by bit the victim-of-a-love-rat pack have abandoned their goody- two-shoes images and made embarrassing attempts to raunch up their style. Anthea Turner, Julia Carling, and even Carol Smillie have … [Read more...] about The age of indignity
