Sr. Cecylia Maria Roszak, a Polish Dominican believed to be the worlds oldest nun, has died at the age of 110, over 80 years after she helped to save Jews during the Holocaust as a young woman.

The Archdiocese of Krakow announced her passing on Nov. 21 and hailed her unflagging efforts to help the needy.In 1984, Sr. Cecylia and the other nuns received the Righteous Among the Nations award from Yad Vashem for the aid they provided that saved Jewish lives during the Holocaust.
