“In my fantasies, I was always caught up in heroic struggles, and I saw myself saving lives, sacrificing myself for others. I had far loftier ambitions than mere romance.”
Irene Opdyke, In My Hands: Memories of a Holocaust Rescuer

“Every day now, I found a chance to slip outside and leave food under the fence. I knew it was a drop in the ocean, but I could not do nothing.”
Irene Gut Opdyke, In My Hands: Memories of a Holocaust Rescuer

“If we were stopped and questioned, I always smiled at the officers, and they always smiled back. In my heart, I was seeing them dead. But on my face, I was an open invitation. If you are only a girl, this is how you destroy your enemies.”
Irene Gut Opdyke, In My Hands: Memories of a Holocaust Rescuer
