ONLY A GIRL tells the true story of Irene Gut Opdyke, a Holocaust Rescuer who, at the age of 17, helped save hundreds of lives during the Second World War. Based on personal interviews with Irene herself, this remarkable tale of courage and commitment comes to life. As told through narrative, “visited” memories, film images, and original music and songs, “Only a Girl” carries us back with Irene through her idyllic childhood in pre-war Poland to her days with the Polish Resistance and onward… “Only a Girl” celebrates the courage and love of Survivor and Rescuer, and continues Irene’s voice… so that through hope and love and the shedding of supposed differences… we can find our single humanity. And in that humanity, reach out to one another without fear, only love.

" ...In today’s materialistic world, this story depicts what really matters- respect for others, acceptance of cultural and religious differences, and the determination to do the right thing- even when it results in uncomfortable, personal sacrifice. I have shared Irene’s story with many people since seeing the play. If we all incorporated a fraction of Irene’s compassion and courage into our daily lives, imagine the positive impact." - Pat Ryan, Vice President, Princeton Healthcare System
