I have just finished reading her book, and the answer to the question is very apparent. everyone should be treated the same no matter the race religion or nationallity! we are all family and should all risk our own lives to save others. irene belived this to be true. if i could speak for her today i would say love your fellow peers and always consider the big picture.
