Too few people know of Irena Sendler, the diminutive Polish social worker who helped spirit nearly four hundred children out of the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II.

Using toolboxes, ambulances, and other ingenious measures, Irena Sendler defied the Nazis and risked her own life by saving and then hiding Jewish children. Her secret list of the children's real identities was kept safe, buried in two jars under a tree in war-torn Warsaw.

An inspiring story of courage and compassion, this biography includes a list of resources, source notes, and an index.

Ages 8+
