This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A sculptor from Poland, she received a gold medal at the International Art Exhibition in Paris in 1937 for her Bison and Gadfly.  She often used the animals at the Warsaw Zoo as her models, and during World War II she hid for several years at the house at the Zoo, a safe haven created by Jan and Antonia Zabinski.  According to Zabinska: "Magdalena could not show herself anywhere outside the house [the Zabinski’s house], and had to disappear into the hideout whenever we signaled that someone was coming.”  The signal they had agreed on was the melody from the operetta Beautiful Helen, Drive, drive, drive to Crete, sung or played on the piano. When she heard it, Magdalena hid in the attic, bathroom, or closet.   At the end of 1943 she was transferred to a hiding place with the Rendzners Family in Saska Kepia.
