“Irena’s Children” by Tilar J. Mazzeo

Book Cover

Irena Sendler, honored as one of the “Righteous Among Nations” at Yad Vashem, a modest Polish Catholic, led a team of Polish citizens to save at least 2500 Jewish children from the Nazis amid the atrocities of the Warsaw Ghetto and the destruction of the city of Warsaw. The author brings the story to life, and I was overwhelmed by the group’s courage, daring and sacrifice of their own safety against impossible odds.
