Rita Rosenzweig was born in Sûre, Belgium, and was raised in Liège. She was an only child who went into hiding with the Maréchal family as a teenager after her mother and aunt were in arrested in July of 1943 and her father was sent to Buchenwald. When Madam Maréchal's son joined the Belgian underground, Rosenzweig moved to Wagram and joined as well. While serving as a partisan, she assisted in transporting ammunition by bike. Rosenzweig, her husband, and her son moved to the United States in 1952. She bore another son and eventually received a pension from the Belgian government for her service in the resistance movement.
