More Info

Irena Sendler was one of the most remarkable, and unlikely, heroes of World War ll, risking her life repeatedly to save the lives of over 2500 Jewish children and babies during the Nazi occupation of Poland.

As a Catholic social worker, Irena had access to the Warsaw Ghetto, where she saw the daily dangers the Jewish children faced. At great personal risk, she devised extraordinary schemes to smuggle the children passed the Nazi guards to safety - often in suitcases, ambulances or even wheelbarrows. With the help of a network of people, they were then placed with safe families until the end of the war.

Irena was eventually captured by the Gestapo, and even after months of torture she maintained her silence. Her heroic efforts were honoured in 2007 with a Nobel Peace Prize nomination.

Starring Anna Paquin (True Blood, The Piano) with her first Golden Globe nomination, Emmy Award nominee. Marcia Gay Harden (Into the Wild, Mystic River) and Goran Visnjic (ER)

M Rated - Mature Themes and Violence.

Staff Review

I am so thankful that there are people today that are able to tell these stories so that they will not be lost. Such sacrifice made by many during such a terrible time. This movie was heart-wrenching as we see the agony that the mothers and families went through in making the decision to give over their children and babies with the hope of their survival, and the dangers that ordinary people faced in their efforts to rescue strangers.

Even the extra 'Conversation about the Production' was inspiring.

We loved this movie and will be recommending it to friends.
