Irena Anders by GuddiPoland Irena Anders by GuddiPoland
Irena Anders, Polish revue artist, actress and singer, second wife of Polish WW2 hero, general Władysław Anders.



She was the one of the first artists to sing the famous Polish patriotic song, Czerwone maki na Monte Cassino</i>, and it was ON MONTE CASSINO, just after the Polish Army won a battle there! (BTW, led to the victory by her future husband, the general... isn't it ROMANTIC? :) )



listen to the song (not by her unfortunately): [link] --- BUT IT IS SOOOOO TOUCHING, makes me PROUD TO BE POLISH!

*it means 'Red Poppies on Monte Cassino' - and the lyrics is about the poppies, which are even more red there on Monte Cassino, cause they grew on the blood of Polish Soldiers who died there...*

EDIT: another song, this time by her, just to show you her VOICE! --- [link]

'Renata Bogdańska' is her artistic pseudonym.

Sh*t, she had that looks when she was young, hadn't she? Now she's 90 and lives in London, still looking very very elegant!
