In Praise Of Cape Town's Josie Borain And Lecica Cameras

Josie Borain has had an incredible career in modeling and fashion. She has continued to grow with age. She is just like that saying: "You're not getting older. Youre getting' better." Very few people own Leicas. (Josie and I are proud owners.) They are expensive. Few people know that Germany makes the best optical equipment on Planet Earth. Even fewer people know that in World War II Leica transferred over 1,200 Jewish employees to overseas places far from Germany. They effectively saved these people and their families from the Gestapo gas chambers. Oskar Shindler gets a lot of credit for saving his Jewish workers but Leica is forgotten for the brave and wonderful thing that they did.
