Szaflarska was born in 1915. She started acting on stage in 1939 and was a courier during the Warsaw Uprising. She debuted on the big screen in 1946, after which she appeared regularly on screen, mostly in supporting roles.

Her film career regained momentum in the 1990s, when she won several Polish film awards for best actress for her role in ‘Time to Die’ (1998).

She continued acting well into old age and decided to finish her career only last year due to health concerns. (mol/pk)
