In My Hands began as one non-Jew抯 challenge to any who would deny the Holocaust. Much like The Diary of Anne Frank, it has become a profound document of an individual抯 heroism in the face of the greatest evil mankind has known.

In the fall of 1939 the Nazis invaded Irene Gut抯 beloved Poland, ending her training as a nurse and thrusting the sixteen-year-old Catholic girl into a world of degradation that somehow gave her the strength to accomplish what amounted to miracles. Forced into the service of the German army, young Irene was able, due in part to her Aryan good looks, to use her position as a servant in an officers?club to steal food and supplies (and even information overheard at the officers?tables) for the Jews in the ghetto. She smuggled Jews out of the work camps, ultimately hiding a dozen people in the home of a Nazi major for whom she was housekeeper.

An important addition to the literature of human survival and heroism, In My Hands is further proof of why, in spite of everything, we must believe in the goodness of people.
