An extraordinary and gripping true account of Irena Sendler -- the "female Oskar Schindler" -- who took staggering risks to save 2,500 children from death and deportation in Nazi-occupied Poland during WWII. In 1942, one young social worker, Irena Sendler, was granted access to the Warsaw ghetto as a public health specialist. While she was there, she began to understand the fate that awaited the Jewish families who were unable to leave. Soon she reached out to the trapped families, going from door to door and asking them to trust her with their young children.
