Irena Sendler: In the Name of Their Mothers
This is the story of 29-year-old Irena Sendler who saw the suffering of Warsaw’s Jews, and reached out to her most trusted colleagues for help, and outwitted the Nazis during World War II. 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.
