Hela Schupper

The only member of her family and fellow resistance fighters to survive the Holocaust, Hela Schupper felt that she could only live in Palestine, where she could tell the story "of what happened to us… of the murder of millions, of life in the ghettos, of the unequal, impossible and heroic struggle against the Nazi beast," while also helping to "build Erez Israel."
