Episode 4: Shadow Projections
Ayla, a young Jewish woman from France, walked for miles in the middle of the night through mountainous regions with snowdrifts and freezing temperatures toward the German front.
Nearing the front with its watchful snipers, Ayla would leave her African commando escort behind and continue on alone.
Pretending to be a nurse searching for her soldier boyfriend, Ayla put her life at seemingly unsurmountable risk, but she crossed into German territory many times providing crucial information to the Free French Army regarding enemy troop strongholds and movements.
Award winning Vancouver actor Nicola Lipman is the voice of Ayla.
