The courageous heart of Irena Sendler Hallmark Hall of Fame World premiere ; director, John Kent Harrison ; writers, John Kent Harrison and Lawrence John Spagnola

Publication | Library Call Number: DVD-0318

As a social worker, Irena had access to the Warsaw Ghetto, making it possible for her to rescue the daughter of a Jewish friend and safely hide the young girl with a Catholic family. Realizing that thousands of children were still in danger, Irena recruited sympathetic friends and co-workers to smuggle children out and place them in safe homes, farms and convents. At great personal risk, she devised extraordinary schemes to sneak the children by Nazi guards, bringing them out in ambulances, suitcases and even wheelbarrows.
