"War is an incredible imposition for those who want to live in peace"...
2 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

...just one pearl of wisdom offered by the incredible woman viewers are so fortunate to be introduced to through this documentary. Watching this intriguing film made me want to know more about her and others like her. It's doubtful a documentary filmmaker could be paid any higher compliment than that. Magda was raised in an affluent home with not many difficulties before WWII and could have just decided to fly under the radar, stay out of trouble and get through the war. Instead, she made the decision to put her life on the line repeatedly by working with the Polish resistance during WWII, boldly standing against the Nazis, including in direct confrontations. Decades ago jokes about polish people were common and of course the ignorant people who passed them on were completely unaware that they were ridiculing one of the most courageous, intelligent, humane, hard-working, industrious, fiercely loyal, compassionate groups of people in the world. Magda exemplifies their amazing character. I am so grateful to have had the privilege of watching this documentary and that she was allowed to just tell a part of her life story. Films like Magda need to be a mandatory part of high school and college curriculum so that the world never forgets the value of freedom or what happens when it's gone, that there is no price too high to have it, and no gratitude too much to show to those who've risked everything to protect it. This film is well worth watching. It challenged me to be more aware of what I've been given by those who've gone before me and to be more invested in paying it forward.
