Zivia Lubetkin’s determined and persuasive personality was formed during her childhood in the small shtetl of Byten, Poland. Standing out in the training communes of the Zionist youth movement Freiheit, she became one of its foremost activists. With the onset of WWII, she turned into an inspired and courageous leader in the Zionist underground in the territories of the Soviet Union and in the Warsaw ghetto as well as during the Polish uprisings, and, later still, in the efforts to rehabilitate the Holocaust survivors. Together with her beloved husband, Yitzhak Zuckermann, she established Kibbutz Lohamei Hagetaot and dedicated herself both to her life’s mission and to her family.
