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.
