She served in the Polish underground resistance organization during World War II, and headed the children’s section of Zegota in German-occupied Warsaw.

She was caught, and the Nazi’s broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Tortured and sentenced her to death by the Nazis escaped execution and survived the war.
