Malkha was born  January 8,1925 in Reisha Poland, to Chaya and Mordechai.   Brother Shlomo was born four years later. Due to financial hardships, her father decided to move to Germany for a while, to find work to support his family. Malka studied five years in ‘Beit- Ha’am’ Hebrew High-School, where she acquired knowledge of Polish, Hebrew and Tanach.  Her father returned 1936 and the family immigrated to the Land of Israel. Their relations remaining in Poland all perished in the Holocaust.  Malka graduated from ‘Talpiyot’ High-School and Levinsky Teachers Seminary.  WWII arrived with  deportation of immigrant ships from Israel’s shores and the ‘White Book, all contributing to her feeling she should try and ‘do something’. She looked for an underground movement, whose purpose was to expel the British foreign rulers and found herself in the rows of Lehi. At first she was pasting up posters, distributing clandestine information, attending ideology courses. She enjoyed the fact that in Lehi meetings one could voice any opinion, and argue. Afterwards she was transferred to Department Six (Intelligence), continuing there until establishment of the State. Among her duties, she  gathered information about  British, Jews and foreigners. At various times she established connections with policemen, CID men, administration officers, and members of Palmach/Hagannah. She was in charge of a group of youth whom she instructed in this activity. She underwent courses in ideology and weapons training. In 1946 Malka married Lehi comrade Ya’acov Bentov. That year she was transferred to Haifa and continued her activities until the British left. Afterwards she worked as a teacher at Bialik High-School Haifa, and had two of her children: Yossi and Smadar. In 1952 the family moved to Kibbutz Kfar-Szold then eventually joined Kibbutz Kabri. Malka worked for most of her years  teaching and as school principal. She fulfilled various positions related with education and culture. She was recruited to the education branch of the United Kibbutz Movement and managed the Instruction branch of the Ghetto Fighters’ Museum, four years. In Kabri she had daughter Chayut.
