She died in 1939 in California at the age of 60, just three years after retiring."

The Nazis Knew My Name. Book review by Stephen Gibbs, Daily Mail, Australia, Sep. 11, 2021. Prisoners were known by their numbers in Auschwitz-Birkenau - Magda's was 2318 - or 'dreiundzwanzig achtzehn' in German - but some of the senior SS came to address her by name, hence the book's title. This book tells the story of how a brave Holocaust survivor used her position to manipulate the most feared Nazi psychopaths including the Hyena of Auschwitz and Beast of Belsen to save thousands of Jewish women from the gas chambers. Magda Hellinger survived three years in the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camps. In May 1943, Magda was made 'blockälteste' of Block 10 in the main Auschwitiz camp where Dr Eduard Wirths conducted pseudo-scientific experiments on female inmates. As the 'prisoner functionary' of Block 10, Magda was tasked with organising other Jewish inmates. She was eventually made 'lagerälteste' (camp leader), responsible for 30,000 Jewish women.

Whether a poster encouraged the purchase of Victory Bonds or discouraged talk of Allied troop movements, its mission was to convey a specific message that could be interpreted only one way ... In the First World War, posters were beset with text, while Second World War posters more effectively used emphatic slogans and intense graphics.
Canadian war posters were produced for a specific audience and for specific purposes. They were not meant to be archival or historical documents, but because of their time and place specificity they have become an important resource through which today's researchers and interested public can explore aspects of wartime life. Canadian war posters present the modern viewer with seemingly dated and distant images, yet they convey both the intensity and the immediacy of a by-gone era."
