Irena's Children: The Extraordinary Story of the Woman Who Saved 2,500 Children from the Warsaw Ghetto

Tilar J. Mazzeo

From the bestselling author of The Widow Cliquot (2008) comes the true story of Irena Sendler--known as “the female Oskar Schindler”—who took staggering risks to save 2,500 children in Nazi-occupied Poland from deportation and death during World War II. As a young social worker in 1942, she was granted access to the Warsaw ghetto as a public health specialist. As she began to understand the fate that awaited Jewish families who were unable to leave, she went from door to door asking them to trust her with their babies and young children. She then smuggled them in coffins and in toolboxes, under overcoats, or through the city's sewers to safe houses and orphanages where their identities were changed until the war was finally over.
