German Army published newspaper, "Nurnberg Post Spade," acquired Margit Morawetz Gyorgy when she worked for the Office of War Information. Before the war, Margit's mother, Lilly, sent her to study in Paris in 1938 because the expansion of German rule posed a threat to their life in Prague. Lilly joined Margit there a year later, but because she was an Austrian citizen, was imprisoned as an enemy alien after France declared war on Germany following the German invasion of Poland in September 1939. Lilly was released when Germany occupied France in May 1940. She and Margit escaped to Portugal and, in 1941, were able to immigrate to the US. After America's entry into World War II, Margit worked for the Office of War Information, making use of her knowledge of languages. Postwar, Margit worked as a youth activities specialist for the U.S. Army Assistance Program to German Youth, re-educating former Hitler Youth in Furth, Germany.
