Rozka Korczak-Marle (1921-1988)
Rozka Korczak was born in Bielsko and lived in Plock, Poland until the outbreak of WWII. When the war began, she moved to Vilna and joined the leadership of Hashomer Hatzair. In the Vilna ghetto, she took part in establishing the United Partisan Organization. On September 23, 1943, the day the ghetto was to be liquidated, she escaped through the sewer system and fled to the forests of Rodnicki where she joined the partisans. In July 1944 she returned to Vilna and was sent by Hashomer Hatzair to Mandate Palestine, where she arrived on December 12, 1944. In Palestine, she joined Kibbutz Eilon and provided the Yishuv leadership and institutions with a complete report on the war and the Jewish resistance. She eventually settled on Kibbutz Ein Hahoresh.
