Jeannie Opdyke Smith  

Inspiring Holocaust Rescuer

Jeannie is part of a new generation of Holocaust Speakers sharing life stories from their parent's first-hand experiences.

She is a regular speaker for the Anti-Defamation League, as well as the Bearing Witness Program, Israel Bonds, and an international speaker for the Jewish Federation of North America. In November 2015, Jeannie was one of the Honorees at the Anti Defamation Leagues, "Houston in Concert against Hate," where she was awarded a Civil Rights Metal. She travels to organizations, events, schools, churches, camps, fund raising groups, and clubs throughout the United States, Canada, and the UK.

The story, although filled with the horrors and hate the Holocaust holds, also brings a message that faith, hope, and love can ultimately triumph over evil. It proclaims the conviction that one by one, we can say no to hatred, persecution, and prejudice.

The story speaks to the power of love, and encourages the fact that, “One person can make a difference!” Love is the greatest weapon we have, Hate is easy, it takes real courage to Love.
