This documentary tells the story of young Catholic social worker Irena Sendler who saw the suffering of Warsaw’s Jews, reached out to her most trusted colleagues for help, and outwitted the Nazis during WWII. Together they rescued over 2,500 Jewish children. This film expertly captures the will and character of the women of the resistance against the backdrop of occupied Poland. Directed by Mary Skinner.
