Irene Miller fled Poland when she was about five years old in order to escape the Holocaust. She and her family dealt with soldiers breaking into her home in the middle of the night, a freezing labor camp, starvation, and more.
Still, she says she has no bitterness towards those who wronged her.
"I am not angry, I am absolutely not bitter," Irene says. "I feel I have a lot of joy of living and a lot of love to share with others."
Irene Miller recounts her remarkable story in the book, Into No Man's Land. She'll share her story tonight at the Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City.
She says it's important to remember what took place, so we can avoid similar situations in the future.
