About this item

This is the story of a group of young Polish women, some barely out of their teens, who outwitted the Nazis during World War II. When 29-year-old social worker Irena Sendler saw the suffering of Warsaw's Jews, she reached out to her most trusted colleagues for help. Together, they rescued over 2,500 Jewish children by forging identification papers and placing them in Catholic safe houses and orphanages in Warsaw and the Polish countryside. They were taking an enormous risk. Ruthless blackmailers and Gestapo agents were constantly on the lookout for Jews who had escaped the ghetto walls. Children suspected of being Jewish were quizzed on Catholic culture, their lives dependent upon concealing their heritage. Several rescued children give moving accounts of their confusion, resentment, and sense of abandonment after assuming their Catholic identities. In her late 90s when interviewed for the film, Irena Sendler's straightforward account of her life and works is both humbling and inspiring. She vividly recalls her brush with death in a Gestapo prison, and her continued harassment by authorities in post-war Communist Poland. This film expertly captures the will and character of the women of the resistance against the backdrop of occupied Poland.

Subtitles: English SDH (Subtitles for Deaf and Hearing Impaired).

This is an excellent video portraying the true story of Irena Sendler, a young Polish, Roman Catholic woman who smuggled 2500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust. I highly recommend this video. The price was reasonable and the delivery prompt.

From what I saw of this movie, it's a real eye-opener. When you see what the children and their parents went through to survive, it breaks your heart. And then after the war, when some children didn't have any family TO go back to, let alone mom and dad. And then some children were very fortunate that BOTH parents survived the war. Very eye opening and touching story
