Sarah Braverman, a founder of the IDF’s Women’s Army Corps, passed away on Saturday at the age of 95. Surika, as she was known, was one of the first women to join the Palmach, the elite striking arm of the Hagana militia, the forerunner of the Israeli army.

Braverman was also one of only three women among a select group of thirty seven volunteers from the Yishuv, Israel’s pre-state Jewish community, who were parachuted into Nazi controlled territory during the Second World War.

Fellow paratrooper Hannah Senesh, who was killed after landing near the Hungarian border and whose poetry became an integral part of the Zionist zeitgeist here.
