No amount of oppression from Hitler during Nazi Germany can stop this woman from helping children in all the ways that she can.
Despite being only a small woman in stature, the heart of Irena Sendler and her heroic deeds is something everyone needs to know about!
Standing on 4 foot and 11 inches, Polish woman Irene Sendler faced the big problems with clever ideas and helped save 2,500 children in her entire life.
As a social worker in the ghetto areas of Warsaw, she began her quest to give aid to the Jews by smuggling food, clothing, and medicine. However, during the fall of Hitler’s regime, almost 200,000 were deported to a death camp called the Treblinka death camp where there gassed immediately.
Upon knowing this, Sendler and her co-idealists declared war on Hitler and doubled their efforts in helping the Jews who were being mass murdered. They helped 2,500 children escape by hiding them in coffins, potato sacks, and suitcases.
Not long after, the evil men found about their activities and this led to her capture on October of 1943. Even if she was brutally tortured and almost killed, Sendler never gave the locations of her co-workers and was given the death sentence for it. She was able to bribe her way out of it and escape.
Not much was known about this timeless heroine until the late 1990s after high schoolers researched about her life and turned it into a play.
In 1964, Irena Sendler received the Israeli honorary title of "Polish Righteous among the Nations," and in 1997, she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
She was able to live peacefully with her family until she passed away last 2008.
