Zbigniew Kuzminski – Agent nr 1 (1972)

A wartime thriller drama; based on authentic events, the story of the famous intelligence and diversion ace operating in Greece, Jerzy Shaynovich-Ivanov, a Pole by origin. The elusive agent, for whose head the Nazis set a high reward, was born in Warsaw, to a family of a Russian and a Polish woman. As a boy of several years, Jerzy Ivanov-Shaynovich found himself in Thessaloniki when his mother married a Greek for the second time. He mastered English, Russian, French, German and Greek perfectly. He studied in Belgium and France and earned an engineering degree. The outbreak of war found him in Greece. With one of the last ships, he left his adopted homeland, intending to join the Carpathian Brigade. He still had Polish citizenship and a passport, but for formal reasons he was not accepted into the Polish army. He then made contact with a military outpost of British intelligence – after training in Alexandria, he was flown to Greece in 1941. He became famous for many daring diversionary actions. He was an excellent swimmer, repeatedly reaching German ships standing on the roadstead – attaching magnetic mines to them and blowing them up. He destroyed fuel tanks or added preparations to aircraft oils that caused engines to explode in the air. He provided English intelligence with valuable information about Nazi troop movements in Greece, convoys departing for North Africa, field airfields and factories working for the occupying forces. Twice after being arrested, he managed to escape from the Gestapo.
