Irena Sendler, who was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1910, has been hailed as one of the Second World War’s great heroes for her extraordinary efforts during the Holocaust.
In 1939, when Germany invaded Poland, the then 29-year-old decided she would do everything within her power to help Jews survive the Nazi brutality.
The kind-hearted woman began aiding the hunted people with food and shelter, as the regime evicted them from their homes and forced them out of labour. Refusing to yield to the overwhelming cruelty, the brave woman began saving children from the inhuman camp, which had 10 feet high walls topped with barbed wire, to stop the desperate and starved captives from escaping.
