About Frumka Plotnicka

Chaika Grossman and Frumka Plotnicka were heroic girls. Frumka was discovered hiding in a cellar in August 1943. She died fighting, armed only with a handgun.

Boldly they traveled back and forth from cities in Poland carrying Aryan papers, identifying them as Poles or Ukranians. One of them even wears a cross which she never parts with, except in the ghetto.

They were in mortal danger every day, relying on the Aryan faces and peasant scarves over their heads. Without a second's hesitation they accepted and carried out the most dangerous missions. If someone was needed to travel to any of the cities, carry contraband, rescue comrades, they would offer and do it. Simply, and without fuss. They were the first to bring back tidings about Vilna. They had been arrested and searched a number of times, but fortune had shone on them.

The story of these Jewish women will be a glorious page in the history of the Jews during the Holocaust. The girls were indefatigable.
