On November 27, 1941 Zoya received an assignment to burn the village of Petrischevo, where the Germans were. There Zoya managed to set fire to a couple of houses.
She was tortured and interrogated throughout the night but refused to give up any information. The following morning she was marched to the center of the town with a board around her neck 'Houseburner' and hanged.
"Comrades! Why are you so gloomy? I am not afraid to die! I am happy to die for my people!" "You'll hang me now, but I am not alone. There are two hundred million of us. You can't hang us all."
