- A New York Post Best Book of 2016
- An extraordinary telling 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 World War II.
- In 1942, one young social worker, Irena Sendler, was granted access to the VWarsaw ghetto as a public health specialist. While there, she reached out to trapped Jewish families, asking parents to trust her with their young children. She started smuggling them out of the walled district, convincing her friends and neighbors to hide them. With the help of the resistance, Irena ultimately smuggled thousands of children past the Nazis.
- But Irena did something even more astonishing: she kept secret lists buried in bottles under an apple tree in a friend's garden. On them were the names and identities of those Jewish children, recorded with the hope that their relatives could find them after the war. She could not have known that more than ninety percent of their families would perish.
- In Irena's Children, Tilar J. Mazzeo tells the incredible story of this courageous woman who risked her life to save innocent children from the Holocaust-a truly heroic tale of survival, resilience, and redemption.
