Reik, Haviva (1914–1944)
Jewish resistance fighter . Name variations: Havivah. Born Haviva Emma Reik in Slovakia (now Czechoslovakia) in 1914; executed by the German military during World War II in 1944.
A native of Slovakia (now Czechoslovakia), Haviva Reik emigrated to Palestine in the late 1930s and joined the kibbutz Ma'anit. In 1944, during the Nazi occupation of Slovakia, she and three other volunteers parachuted into their former homeland to assist the Jewish resistance and to spy for the Allied forces. Reik was eventually captured by the German military and executed. In present-day Israel, she is regarded as a national hero; both the kibbutz Lehavot Haviva and the Givat Havivah research center bear her name in tribute.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
