Stephanie Czech Rader

Stephanie Czech Rader died on January 21, 2016 in Alexandria, Virginia, at the age of 100. Polish media ignored this.

Stephanie was born to Polish immigrants in Toledo, Ohio. She graduated from Cornell University with a degreee in chemistry in 1937.

She was an Office of Strategic Services agent at the US Embassy in Warsaw in the immediate aftermath of WWII. She traveled Poland and obtained valuable socio-economic information and information on Soviet troop movements. The Legion of Merit was awarded to her posthumously.

The silence of Polish media about her and her intelligence work is very telling.
