In October, 1941 the Komsomol member Zoya Kosmodemyansky volunteered to join a special guerrilla troop, which operated on the instructions of the headquarters of the Western front in Mozhaisk direction. She went to the enemy's rear twice. In the end of November 1941 while on her second operational task near Petrishchevo's Village in the Moscow Region she was captured by fascists. Despite cruel tortures she never gave out the military secret nor told her name. On November 29 she was hung up by fascists.
