Vera Ducas (1912-1948) was born to a Jewish family in Austria-Hungary/Czechoslovakia. She fled the 1939 Nazi invasion with her husband and child. They lived in Turkey for several years before arriving in Palestine. She didn't speak Hebrew and was unable to find work and is alleged to have become an informer for the British CID.[1] According to The Scotsman on Sunday 29th March 1948 she was 'kidnapped from one of the main cafes of Jerusalem's Jewish Quarter' and her body found on a patch of waste ground, shot through the head. Their correspondent reported that the Stern Gang had announced that they had killed her, accusing her of spying for the British.[2][3] References ^ Harry Levin, 'Jerusalem Embattled', Cassel, London, 1997.
