Olga Benário , after whom the camp was named, was a German anti fascist who married a Brazilian revolutionary. They were arrested together for agitating in Rio de Janeiro and she got sent back to Nazi Germany where she died in a concentration camp.
Brazilians still look up to her. You can find out more about her here.
This is Olga Jnr, named in her honour. 6 months old. My youngest fan!
Sorry. Politics creeping in there….
