She also translated many songs, among others, Pete Seeger’s “Where Have All the Flowers Gone”.

    The film was directed by Emmy Award winner Sławomir Grünberg and produced by Zygmunt Sieradzki, Wanda’s son. In October 2016 the film’s premier was held  in Warsaw at the Museum of the History of Polish Jews POLIN. In November 2016 the document was screened in Australia at international festivals in Sydney and Melbourne and in May 2017 it will be shown at the Polish Festival in New York and Chicago.
