In My Hands: Memories of a Holocaust Rescuer – Irene Gut Opdyke (with Jennifer Armstrong)
Irene Gut was just 17 in 1939, when the Germans and Russians devoured her native Poland. Just a girl, really. But a girl who saw evil and chose to defy it. Her memoir is one of the most gripping of all Holocaust-rescue stories, and gives us hope that individual humans are capable of the most selfless and heroic behavior.
