Zelma Steiner, a Jewish partisan in Slovakia.
She initially joined a unit of Czech partisans, but then met up with a group of Jewish partisans who had taken part in the Slovak uprising, and she joined them. She functioned as a fighter and a combat medic, and despite her youth and youthful appearance she was noted for her resourcefulness and daring, and won much esteem. Zelma Steiner was captured by Gestapo soldiers and bravely withstood torture. She revealed nothing, and was executed.
