Only a girl. That's what Irene Gut was when the nightmare of WWII began and her life was changed forever. Stories of Holocaust survival abound but you will never read a memoir like this. I cried at the end. Hard. For what she went through and for all those she could not save. To say she had courage tells but a fraction of the story. She was only a girl but she risked her life over and over again to help people she didn't even know. Unforgettable. I don't think she will ever leave my mind.
