Boris Korczak, the Spy with Nine Lives Part 2
Episode 2.6: Boris Korczak, the Spy with Nine Lives Part 2
Following on from the first part of our episode, in which we recreated an interview with Boris Korczak that took place in Washington, DC in 1982, we take a closer look at the strange life of this ex-CIA agent. We learn of his early life in communist Poland and his escape to Denmark, where he started to work on behalf of the United States. We hear another of his stories, in which the top CIA man in Copenhagen got drunk and outed him as a spy. We examine the similarities between Korczak's claims and the story of Georgi Markov. And we ponder - how much can we believe the "Spy with Nine Lives" as he battled the CIA for compensation?
