ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Jeannie Opdyke Smith shares a powerful and riveting true story of one Polish gentile girl who changed the world for dozens of people during the Holocaust. Her mother, Irene Gut Opdyke, a nursing student when the Nazis invaded Poland, risked her life to save Jewish people during the Holocaust. Her story will be recounted by Jeannie as she discusses what can be learned from her mother's heroism.

The Institute of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Raritan Valley Community College's program will begin with the compelling story of survival from Holocaust survivor Tova Friedman, originally from Poland and a child survivor of Auschwitz.
