Hennia Blokh

Daughter of Reb Elimelekh Blokh. She was shot a few weeks before the end of the ghetto. Outside of the ghetto, she was helping the girls inside, was denounced and tortured.

Different witnesses – among them Yochebed Vareyes – have confirmed that Hennia was caught while hiding in a farm, and didn’t want to give details about her terrible end.
This photograph is not later than 1938 as my mother didn’t attend the last classes of the gymnasium. See Hennia’s diploma with photograph from 1940.
