Description

Irena Sendler was a young Polish woman living in Warsaw during World War II with an incredible story of survival and selflessness. But she has been long forgotten by history. Until now. This young readers' edition of Irena's Children tells Irena's unbelievable story, set during one of the worst times in modern history. With guts of steel and unfaltering bravery, Irena smuggled thousands of children out of the walled Jewish ghetto in toolboxes and coffins, snuck them under overcoats at checkpoints, and slipped them through dank sewers and into secret passages that led to abandoned buildings, where she convinced her friends and the underground resistance network to hide them. In this heroic tale of survival and resilience in the face of impossible odds, Tilar Mazzeo and Mary Cronk Farrell share the true story of this courageous woman who risked her life to save innocent children from the horrors of the Holocaust.
