Irena Sendler, a hero for two centuries

The Nazis invade Poland and proceed to round up the Jews and segregate them to live in a section of they city of Warsaw. The city was cordoned off and the Nazis created a Jewish ghetto in Warsaw. The inhabitants were left to die, become drones for slave labor, or shipped off the concentration camps to meet their faith in the gas champers, cyclone B, the ovens, and the horrors of the Holocaust.

Amidst this horror when darkness fell upon Europe there emerged an angle a servant of God to save the children. Irena endler (Irena Sendlerowa) a member of the Warsaw medical services managed to gain escape to 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto. These children survived the war while the vast majority of their parents were never located. 2,500 lived because of Irena Sendler.
