The story of Irena Sendler – a voice of humanity, reason, and immense courage, in a time when the world was filled with evil and hate – is beautifully, powerfully, poignantly and movingly documented in this outstanding book.
Irena, a young Polish woman, led the underground movement in Warsaw during the Holocaust. She heroically and selflessly coordinated rescue operations of thousands of Jewish children, worked tirelessly round the clock to save as many Jewish children as she could, and visited the Warsaw Ghetto daily, bringing relief, hope and life to thousands.
This book will keep you captivated, entranced and breathless from the opening page to the very end. Irena’s Children is an important story, a necessary tribute, and a reminder that some good always remains, even in a world gone mad.
