Chasia Bornstein-Bielicka grew up in Grodno, Poland. During the German occupation, she enlisted in the combat resistance and was sent to Bialystok. There, she became a liaison with the partisans, moving ammunition, medicines, food and information to the Bialystok forests. When the war ended, Chasia embarked on a new chapter in her life: opening the first children s home of the Koordynacja for the Redemption of Jewish Children in Liberated Poland. For a year and a half, she migrated with the children along the route of the Bricha to Germany, France, and then to Eretz Israel.
