Project Description

IRENA

One woman’s story lived through two centuries. Irena Veisaitė, shaped by her experiences through the Holocaust as well as the brutal Soviet occupation of Lithuania, is an icon of open-mindedness and compassion. With the indomitable strength of an almost 100-year-old survivor, Irena is a contemporary role model for our divisive times.
