Official music video for Mała little Flower

    Inspiration for Mała Little Flower

    My song ‘Mała Little Flower,’ was inspired by Irena Gut Opdyke who was a Polish Catholic girl (b. 1922), who not only saved the lives of twelve Jews by hiding them in the basement of an SS officer’s house, but also became an effective resistance fighter with the Polish Partisans, with code name ‘Mała’ meaning ‘little’ in Polish. This song is dedicated to the memory of her fiancé Janek Ridel (pseudonym “Mercedes Benz”), who was killed in action the day before their wedding in May 1944.
