Rivka Moszkowic, member of the Dror youth movement and the Jewish Fighting Organization in the Warsaw (Warszawa) ghetto.
Rivka Moszkowic was born in Bedzin in 1921. At the outbreak of WWII, she returned to Bedzin from her youth movement activities in Kielce and joined the Dror kibbutz (training commune) there. In the summer of 1943, the kibbutz decided to send Rivka to the “Aryan” side of Warsaw, and Zivia Lubetkin provided her with forged identity papers. On her arrival in Warsaw, Rivka worked beside Yitzhak Zuckerman in transferring weapons to the ghetto and aiding Jews in hiding. During the Polish uprising in August 1944, Rivka Moszkowic was wounded, transferred to the hospital, and died there.
