Eta Wrobel
She was active on missions with the men and made important strategic decisions.

In 1944, when the Germans left Lokov, Eta came out of hiding and was asked to be mayor of her town. Shortly after, Eta met Henry, her husband to be. They were married on December 20, 1944. In 1947 Eta and Henry moved to the United States. They currently live in New Jersey and have three children and nine grandchildren. Eta summarizes her heroic years with the partisans by saying simply, “The biggest resistance that we could have done to the Germans was to survive.”

Eta died on May 26, 2008 in her home in upstate New York.
