Summary
"In 1942, social worker Irena Sendler was granted access to the Warsaw ghetto as a public health specialist. She reached out to the trapped Jewish families, asking the parents to trust her with their young children. She started smuggling them out of the walled district, convincing her friends and neighbors to hide them. In a friend's garden, she buried lists of the names and true identities of those children, with the hope that their relatives could find them after the war. Irena could not have known that more than ninety percent of their families would perish." -- Back cover
