Anna Levina was born in 1923 in the town of Bobrynets in Kirovohrad Oblast.
Anna is known to have served on the front lines from the very beginning of the Soviet-German War: July 1941. She was drafted into the Red Army and sent from Moscow to a sorting evacuation hospital.
Since Anna Levina had received marksmanship training, she served in a medical detachment in the 24th Separate Mortar Battalion, which was later reformed into the 169th Mortar Regiment. There, Levina served as a sanitary instructor.
In 1942, Anna Levina was awarded the Order of the Red Star. By that point, she had evacuated eighty wounded soldiers from the battlefield. In many cases, she had to personally fire a mortar gun.
At the same time, Levina was promoted to officer and appointed commander of a firing platoon.
In 1943, Lieutenant Levina was wounded in action, but she returned to active duty after a brief convalescence.
In late July 1944, there was heavy fighting in the village of Zhuravka, fifteen kilometers southeast of Lviv. Many Red Army soldiers were wounded in these clashes. While Levina was giving first aid to one of the wounded men, she was charged by several German soldiers. She kept trying to rescue the wounded soldier and firing back at her attackers, until she ran out of bullets. In the end, she was shot dead. The 21-year-old Anna Levina was buried in a common grave in the village of Pustomyty in Lviv Oblast.
Anna Levina was posthumously awarded the Order of the Patriotic War, 1st class.
