Code Name 'Mary' is the extraordinary memoir of Muriel Gardiner, republished to coincide with the exhibition at the Freud Museum London. Muriel Gardiner was believed to be the anti-Nazi activist ‘Julia’ in Lillian Hellman’s book Pentimento, later filmed as Julia, starring Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave. This encouraged Muriel Gardiner to finally tell her own story in Code Name 'Mary', first published in 1983. This new edition is beautifully produced and lavishly illustrated with archive photographs, which bring to life the work of this extraordinary woman who, despite considerable personal risk, saved the lives of countless individuals during the Austrian fascist, and later the Nazi, regime, under the code name, 'Mary'.
