After being released from prison, Begin came to Israel with the Polish Armed Forces, also known as Anders’ Army. While there, he assumed command of the Irgun, a decision that affected many lives and brought praise through the ranks of the Irgun. Between the years of 1943-1948, Aliza had to live in the shadow of her husband’s position: changing identities, changing place of residence frequently, and often facing loneliness and difficulty. When she gave birth to her second daughter, Hassia, she was forced to do so in the absence of her husband, under a pseudonym, and with no access to help from the outside. Fortunately, the many challenges did not drive Menachem and Aliza apart – quite the contrary. Their friends spoke of a harmonious relationship and a deep connection between the two. Despite Aliza’s near-complete avoidance of political activity and media exposure, she supported her husband’s positions and shared his view of reality.
