Présentation de l'éditeur
An unsung Jewish heroine of World War II
Her daring activity in the Red Orchestra and the heroic struggle in a Gestapo prison.
Zosha Poznanska was recruited into the Soviet spy network known as the Red Orchestra, which operated in Western Europe. It was on the eve of World Rar II and Zosha was part of the inner core of the network, a third of whose members were Jews. Apparently unaware of the Jews' participation in the Red Orchestra, Hitler declared, "The Bolsheviks surpass us in one area alone: espionage!" and he commanded his counterspies to eradicate this network at all costs.
This book tells the story of Zosha through all the chapters of her short life: childhood, the Hashomer Hatzair youth movement in Poland, Eretz Israel and the PKP in the 1920s, Europe in the 1930s and the Red Orchestra. It tells her loves, her relationships with family and friends, her daring activity in the Red Orchestra and her heroic struggle in a Gestapo prison. The State of Israel posthumously awarded Zosha a medal of honor for fighting the Nazis.
Zosha Poznanska is an unsung Jewish heroine of World War II. Born in Kalisz Poland, she immigrated to Israel as a pioneer and for a brief time belonged to the group that founded Kibbutz Mishmar Ha'emek. Afterwards, she joined the Palestine Communist Party (Palestiner Kumunistishe Partie in Yiddish, abbreviated PKP), and from 1930 until her death she lived in France and Belgium.

This book was more about Zosha's life and her story of fighting back, never giving up. The author did a great job of blending what she perceived to have happened and what actually happened from records, stories, and people who knew Zosha.
Very different then what I am used to reading but still hit the mark on what I like to read about and gave me a glimpse into a another life during this time in history. A sad time were tragedy happened along with gains in science medical practice, etc, all in the name of genocide.
We can all be thankful for things that happened during this time while mourning the deaths of so many innocent people who should have had a right to live on to be able to tell their own stories. People like Zosha stood up and tried to help others even if it cost her the very life she lived. A great book that any Heroine lover will enjoy.
I only wish to be as strong as this lady if the day ever comes for me to stand up for what I believe in. I received this product as part of a promotion in order to facilitate an honest and unbiased review.
I always try to learn something from the books I read, and while reading this book, I learned a lot. It is very obvious that the author to their time researching and it shows that she is very educated about the time period.
If you're interested in seeing things about WWII from a different perspective, Codename: Zosha is a book worth reading!
