Meet Elsie Leitz.  She is a hero.  During World War II, many people were forced into labor or even sent to concentration camps and killed.  This was more than Elsie could stand.  So she made up her mind to help as many people as should could.  Many women from the Ukraine were forced by the Nazis into slavery at Elsie's father's factory.  Elsie risked her own life by helping these women.  She gave them extra food and blankets.  Find out about this remarkable woman who proved that even one person can make a difference.
