Mala Zimetbaum, a member of the Jewish underground in Belgium.
Zimetbaum was interned in the Auschwitz camp and afterwards in a women's camp in Birkenau, where she served as an interpreter. Along with her friend Edward - Edek Galinski, a veteran inmate there, she escaped from Birkenau in June 1944. They were caught, taken back to the camp and sentenced to death by hanging. The two committed suicide as they stood in front of the gallows.
