Abba Kovner
In 1941, Abba Kovner galvanized the divided factions of the Vilna ghetto resistance to join together and fight back against their would-be murderers, creating the FPO (United Partisan Organization). Kovner would go on to command the FPO, lead the famed Avengers unit, and help found the state of Israel - becoming one of its most renowned poets.
