Magdalena Grodzka-Gużkowska passed on 6th January, a day preceding her 90th birthday. Therefore, soon it will be 30 days since her death. By combining Jewish tradition of shloshim with the will to remember this wonderful and energetic person, we would like to invite all friends of Magda, her acquaintances as well as those who did not know her in person, but read or heard about this Righteous-Among-the-Nations woman, to participate in a remembrance meeting. During the meeting we will watch documentaries, which will cheer us up with smile and energy of „Szczęściara”.

During World War II, Magdalena Grodzka-Gużkowska, being only 14, became an agent of the counterintelligence of the Polish Underground State. Later, as part of the framework of Żegota, she saved Jewish children from the ghetto and helped the Jews in hiding on the Aryan side. She participated in the Warsaw uprising. She was a prisoner of war in a few camps, and later she went abroad; she came back in 1974. Then, she worked with autistic children. Throughout her life, she saved and helped people.

In Yad Vashem, she has her tree of the Righteous Among the Nations. She is also a recipient of the Irena Sandler Memorial Award by the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life and Culture.
