Summary "How did one woman save 2500 children? Based on the remarkable true story of World War II hero Irena Sendler, who rescued over 2,500 Jewish children during the German occupation of Poland. As a social worker, Irena had access to the Warsaw ghetto, making it possible for her to rescue the daughter of a Jewish friend and safely hide the young girl with a Catholic family. Realizing that thousands of children were still in danger, Irena recruited sympathetic friends and co-workers to smuggle children out. At great personal risk, she devised extraordinary schemes to sneak the children by Nazi guards. Not a single child she rescued was ever betrayed or discovered by the Nazis. Often called "The Female Schindler," Sendler not only saved thousands of lives, but also countless generations of their descendants"--Container.
