A fire broke out in a building in the city of Givatayim, near Tel Aviv, on Thursday morning, one elderly woman was rescued by the Fire Department forces.

The Fire Department had to use ladders to reach the apartment and rescued the woman through the balcony.

The woman turned out to be a Holocaust survivor, she told her rescuers.


"You are angels compared to the devils of back then," the woman told the Fire Department forces emotionally.

The woman was invited by the forces to a Holocaust memorial ceremony at the Fire Department station in Ramat Gan later on Thursday.
