‘Magda’ is the story of a Magdalena, a Polish woman born into a noble family who lived in the Nazi occupied Warsaw and was recruited by her brother to be a spy for the Polish Underground Resistance Army. Her father was Catholic and her mother, Jewish. Magda’s missions began at the young age of seventeen, when she dodged Nazi officers moving back and forth from Warsaw to Berlin and Vienna with false papers and the courage of a lion.
She risked her life on a regular basis transporting crucial information about the Nazi’s and the atrocities being carried out at the concentration camps and on the Polish people. Her brother, taken to a concentration camp, her parents living in fear, family and friends lost; while Magda bore witness to the horrors and oppression that were perpetrated by the Nazi’s and did all she could to fight back. And the beauty of all this? Magda’s war story became a love story and the story is now one of age and life.
