“Irina's Department” – description of the film

World War II continues. 19-year-old Irina (Sophie Nélisse) loses contact with her family in the midst of war. She was forced to work as a slave in a German munitions factory. Her condition improves when SS Major (Dougray Scott) catches her eye. The man, infatuated with the assertive girl, notices that she is overworked and promotes her in the factory structure. Irina takes on new responsibilities in the kitchen, and later is also tasked with running a tailoring workshop where about a dozen Jews work. The heroine manages to overhear the conversation of the Germans, from which she learns about plans to liquidate the nearby ghetto and decides to find a way to rescue the workers under her supervision. A solution to the situation soon emerges – a young Polish woman is offered a job as a housekeeper on the Rogmer estate. Irina decides to take advantage of her employer's trust and hide the Jews who previously worked in the sewing factory in his house. But the conspiracy does not last long. Rogmer discovers Irina's secret and gives her an ultimatum that is difficult to accept – he will keep the secret and in return Irina will “voluntarily” become his mistress.

She hid from her Jewish friends the price she paid for their safety. She trusted only the priest during confession – and did not receive forgiveness. However, in a sense, he was welcomed by Major Edward Rugmer – on December 24, 2012, he became Righteous Among the Nations. Thanks to Irina Gott, 13 Jews, sentenced to death by German law – and wanted by the sadistic SS-Untersturmführer Richard Rokita (Maciej Nawrocki) – survive.

On July 8, 1982, Yad Vashem in Jerusalem honored Irina Gott-Obedek with the title of Righteous Among the Nations. She died on May 17, 2003 in California. On 25 September 2008, President Lech Kaczyński posthumously awarded Irina Gott-Opdycki the Commander's Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland.
