Script E.R co-founders to adapt Irene Gut's Holocaust memoirs as a feature film for Good Deed Entertainment
Irene Gut Opdyke was an extraordinary person. As a seventeen year old Polish Catholic, having suffered unspeakable abuse at the hands of the invading Russian Military, she then found herself forced to be a Housekeeper for a Nazi Major. Realizing that her Ayran looks and fluent German gave her an advantage, she used her position to eavesdrop on SS plans for the Final Solution and warn the local Jews. Having become close to the Jewish laundry workers she oversaw daily, she took the extraordinary measure of hiding them in the basement literally beneath the feet of of the Germans when the Ternpol Ghetto was liquidated. They remained concealed there until the end of the War. But Irene's bravery did not come without huge personal sacrifice.....
Zoë Green and Patrick Given, co-founders of Script E.R have been hired by Good Deed Entertainment to write a feature film about Irene's inspiring life.
