Author Jennifer Armstrong helps Irene Gut Opdyke write her thrilling autobiography, focusing on Irene's experiences during World War II in Poland. Irene was a normal girl who loved her family and wanted to become a nurse when the Hitler invaded her country and turned everything upside down. Irene experienced personal tragedies even while it slowly dawned on her that other people, such as the Jews, were not surviving much worse violence. As a God-fearing young woman, Irene made one choice after another to help in every little way she could, and after the war was over, the world saw how those little choices saved many lives. I highly recommend this book as a true, first-hand account of the reality and atrocities of the Holocaust and World War II.
