She is Joseph Balicki's wife and mother of Ruth Edek and Bronia. In the end she turned out to be the owner of the silver sword, her prized possession. Margrit was taken away by the Nazis to Germany despite Edek's attempts to shoot after the soldiers and save her. She is a minor character as she does not do much in the story.
