Overview


Synopsis

Irena's Vow is the riveting, life-affirming story of one of the most courageous and unsung heroines of World War II. During the German occupation of Poland, Irena Gut Opdyke, a Polish Catholic, was forced to work as head housekeeper for a prominent German major. Over a two-year period of service, Irena risked her own life in order to protect the lives of twelve Jewish refugees, whom she secretly took under her care. Irena's Vow is the extraordinary, true story of one woman's choice and the twelve lives that depended on her decision.
