Member of “Hashomer Hatzair”

Braha arrived in Budapest in 1942 and joined the already outlawed “Hashomer Hatzair” movement. After the German invasion of Hungary on 19.3.1944, she equipped herself with forged Aryan documents and went underground. She was a liaison person among the members of the movement, passed on information about meetings and mainly about the departure of the tiyul. After the Arrow Cross Party formed the government on 15.10.1944, together with two of her friends who were her roommates, Braha safeguarded six suitcases, that contained the equipment of the forgery workshop, brought to them by David Gur. In 1945, after the liberation, Braha emigrated to France and studied at university in Paris. Braha had a tragic death.
