Post war life in England
At the end of the war I was demobilized with the rank of 2nd lieutenant (in later years the President of Poland promoted me to the rank of captain). I married General Władysław Anders in1948, and we settled in London, where we raised our daughter Anna Maria. He was a wonderful, caring husband, and a loving, devoted father. He was also a very social person, and loved to have people around him.
I returned to singing in 1956. I went on to perform on stage and in dramatic theater in the UK. I recorded close to 1,000 songs on BBC radio and on Radio Free Europe, and released nearly 100 records over the course of my career.
We were both very involved in the émigré community in England. The General was treated with affection and all but veneration by those who had served under his command. My husband was banned from ever returning to Poland, and he deeply yearned for his native country.
