Your Friday Awesome: Superhero Grandma

Photographer Sacha Goldberger's 91 year-old grandma, Frederika, really is a superhero:
Frederika was born in Budapest 20 years before World War II. During the war, at the peril of her own life, she courageously saved the lives of ten people. When asked how, Goldberger told us "she hid the Jewish people she knew, moving them around to different places everyday." As a survivor of Nazism and Communism, she then immigrated away from Hungary to France, forced by the Communist regime to leave her homeland illegally or face death.
But she was feeling a bit lonely and depressed so her grandson decided to create a series of portraits to remind her of how awesome she is. He ended up creating a MySpace page for her and now she has over 2,000 people who also think she is awesome. Here are a couple more of my favorites:

Oh, and they didn't stop with just the superhero. There are some more amazing photos on the MySpace page, including this one:
