Hi all,

The smoke has cleared and I can finally put my idea to use. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

We often see threads with WW2 heros, their accomplishments, their quotes, and their books. But there were also WW2 heroines. Women that went above and beyond the call.

This thread will be dedicated to the ladies who did their part and deserve recognition. The rules are simple; women, regardless of country or side of the war. Please post details and pics if possible.

Dude! L-Star! I knew this would happen and should have known it would have been you, or Megile. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I even took the time to carefully look in the dictionary before posting. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I should have called it "A WW2 Female Hero Thread". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Yes indeed, Lilya Litvyak. Good one Tiger Talon. However, I move to nominate the entire 586th Fighter Regiment, the 125th Marina Raskova Memorial Bomber Regiment, and the 46th Taman Guards Bomber regiment.

Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya (http://www.greeklish.org/features/zoya/home.html)

Just before her hanging.... There is another more infamous shot of her after... but I will not post that here. It is in one of the links.

Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya, a 18-year-old schoolgirl from Moscow, voluntarily joined a partisan detachment in 1941, when Nazi forces invaded Russia and mounted an offensive in the direction of Moscow. The brutality of the Nazis accelerated with murder, violence and terror, and on the night of the 27 November 1941, Zoya, together with two comrades, set fire to a German stable near Moscow. Nazi officers quickly caught one of them - Wassilij Klubkow. Under interrogation he betrayed Zoya.

The Nazis arrested her immediately and brutally tortured her in order to get some information on the partisan detachment. Rape, torture, and mutilation could not break her, so they hanged her in public in Petrishchevo near Moscow on the 29th November 1941. Just before she was pushed off the platform with a loop about her neck she shouted to the Nazis: 'You cant hang all 190 million of us.'

Zoya met her death with amazing courage and demonstrated a strong streak of defiance. Her words became a pithy saying.

In same partisan squad with Zoya was another young russian girl, Vera Voloshina. Several days before Zoya's execution Vera was wounded in her shoulder during combat and captured. After torture Vera Voloshina was also publicly hanged, later in the same day.

The Nazis left the half-naked body of Zoya in the snow.
After the war Zoya became the symbol of Soviet resistance to Nazi occupation and she was posthumously decorated a Hero of the Soviet Union as was her brother, Shura, for his service in the Red Army tank corps.

Perhaps some of you have heared of Hanna Szenes (1921-1944). She was an anti-Nazi Hungarian of Jewish ethnicity. She travelled to Palestine where she joined the British army before being parachuted over Yugoslavian territory by the OSS. She was later captured along the Hungarian border while attepmting to go back to Hungary as a spy. She was executed on the 7th of November, 1944.

This highly decorated soldier is Leutenant Natalya Meklin, a Soviet pilot for the "Night Witches". She joined the "Night Witches" in 1942 and went on to fly about 840 by the end of the war.

She received both a Hero of the Soviet Union and Order of Lenin.

Yep, Szenes Hanna and several other of her comrades were to organize and strenghten the Jewish resistance behind enemy lines. And wanted to evacuate her mother from Budapest btw. Either way...she was captured and tortured by the Gestapo in Budapest (note that Hungary was occupied by Germany by than) After the Arrow Cross Party (hungarian nazi party) took over the government, she was brought to trial and sentenced to death. Many of her poems are well known as folk songs up to date, in Israel. She rests in Jerusalem.
