GISI FLEISCHMANN

1892 - 1944
JDC Representative, Slovakia, World War II
Gisi Fleischmann was one of the few female Jewish leaders in Europe during World War II. She helped Jews in Slovakia find refuge in other countries before the war and even in the midst of the war. As a member of the Bratislava underground Working Group, she was involved with the Europa Plan and the Children's Rescue Plan, which attempted to save Jews through bribery and negotiations with the Nazis. Fleischmann was arrested by the SS in 1944, and deported to Auschwitz by Alois Brunner with the notation 'return undesirable' after her name. She was murdered on arrival in Auschwitz in October 1944.
