Event details

Hunted by the Germans during World War II, spymaster Ron Jeffery was referred to by the Gestapo as 'one of the foxiest devils in Europe'. Jeffery, born of a Kiwi father and English mother outwitted and escaped enemy opposition, helped by the Polish Resistance.

Learn more in the exhibition about this highly decorated soldier-spy of the Polish Underground who migrated to Auckland after the war.
