Social-Media-Campaign: „Do you know this woman?“

Hilde Coppi (*30. Mai 1909 in Berlin – † 5. August 1943 in Berlin-Plötzensee) was a German resistance fighter against National Socialism and member of the Rote Kapelle. She illegally relayed greetings and signs of life from German prisoners of war to their relatives in Germany. When she was sentenced to death she was pregnant, so her execution was postponed so that she can breastfeed her son – Hans Coppi Junior.

Irena Bernášková (* 7 February 1904 in Prague; † 26 August 1942 in Berlin-Plötzensee) was a Czech resistance fighter who fought for the regaining of the independence of the Protectorate Bohemia and Moravia and the entire occupied Czechoslovak territory from the German National Socialist.

Rózia Robota (*1921 in Ciechanów; † 6 January 1945 in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp) showed courage against National Socialism in Auschwitz-Birkenau and was consequently punished. Nevertheless, she always remained silent about the resistance movement.

Maria Grollmuß (* 24 April 1896 in Leipzig; † 6 August 1944 in Ravensbrück) was a German Catholic Sorbian publicist and socialist resistance fighter against the Nazi regime. She worked illegally in a resistance group and helped to distribute pamphlets, rescue persecuted people and took part in secret political meetings.
