Born in Mea Shearim, Jerusalem in 1929.
Ahuva was born in a Chassidic family in Jerusalem but joined, as a 14-year-old, the Lechi under the codename Ilana. (Her husband also changed his codename from Uzi to Ilan, so they would be Ilan and Ilana) At their wedding, they couldn’t make pictures, as so many of their friends were from the Underground and wanted by the British. So, the next day they dressed up again to go to the photographer and have this one picture taken.
