This 50- minute solo performance in poetry and prose, was created by Ms. Janet Rodgers and is based on the autobiography of Irena Gut Opdyke, In My Hands. This epic performance poem tells the true story of Irena Gut, a young, Catholic, Polish girl who saved the lives of twelve young Jewish professionals from extermination by the Nazis during WW II. Then, when Poland was taken over by the Soviets, these 12 Jewish men and women saved her. It is a story of love, compassion, courage and human respect.
