Female spy Ioana Gordon led an extraordinary life.
After the Second World War, Ioana had to escape her home country Romania and fled to Switzerland, hidden in the hull of an airplane. She spent several years of her life in Switzerland before moving to Alberta, where she spent the rest of her life on a ranch.
Swiss historian Nadine Mackenzie was close friends with Ioana Gordon and wrote down her story in the book “La rançon de l’espionnage”. She will join us for a reading and discussion.
The event is part of the 'Semaine de la Francophonie' and French will be the main language at the event, while also allowing for questions in English.
