We are all familiar with the millions of Jews murdered by the Nazis in WWII. But there were a few Jews, too few but at least some, saved by small and large efforts of non-Jews. Ann Franks sad story is the best known followed by the ten Boon sisters in Amsterdam in 'The Hiding Place'. This story is from eastern Poland about a young Roman Catholic woman whose faith and courage helped many Jews escape the ghetto. But that wasn't all - she also becomes a 'partisan' fighting 1st the Nazis and then the Soviets. More remarkably she entered the DP (displaced persons) camps after the war and was chosen to come to the US where she still lives.
This is a remarkable story made even more poignant in this audio book by included comments from the real Irene Gut Opdyke.
