  1. A truly amazing woman, very brave. There are so many stories like this during that time, yet they tend to be swept aside and the most horrid are focused on.

    It’s important to remember the great tragedies, but it’s equally or more important to remember the strong, brave, good deeds of people like this woman.

  2. Irena Sendler “The Apple Tree”
    (made me cry, all stories WE know from schools, family, books about OUR history, part of our hearts…)

    2) “The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler”

    Irena Sendler (née Krzyżanowska, commonly referred to as Irena Sendlerowa in Poland; 15 February 1910 – 12 May 2008)was a Polish Catholic social worker who served in the Polish Underground and the Żegota resistance organization in German-occupied Warsaw during World War II.

    Assisted by some two dozen other Żegota members, Sendler saved 2,500 Jewish children by smuggling them out of the Warsaw Ghetto, providing them with false documents, and sheltering them in individual and group children’s homes outside the Ghetto.

  3. I don’t think there could be a higher calling than to save the life of a child,
    even more so 2,500-Irena Sendler was great woman who through her
    actions did much more than place the name of these children in a jar-she
    gave them life. In a very real sense a rebirth.
