Grandson Transforms 91-Year-Old Grandma into Superhero, Cheers Her Up

French photographer Sacha Goldberger noticed his 91-year-old grandmother Frederika was feeling depressed, so he did what any good grandson would do to cheer her up: Photograph her as a superhero.

During World War II, Frederika saved the lives of ten Jewish people by hiding them from Nazis. She was eventually forced to illegally flee Hungary by the Communist regime, or be killed. She’s lived a fairly trying and incredible life and her grandson felt a woman like that shouldn’t have to deal with loneliness and depression.

A couple more pictures from their photo shoot:
