    Irena Sendler A Hero of the Children and Their Mothers I was taught by my father that when someone is drowning, you don t ask if they can swim You just jump in and help Irena Sendler was never anyone to brag she always said that she simply did what she had to do What she did, however, was nothing short of extraordinary A young Catholic Polish social worker from Warsaw, she saved the lives of at least 2,000 Jewish children, smuggling them out of the Warsaw Ghetto, an unbearably overcrowded Irena Sendler A Hero of the Children and Their Mothers I was taught by my father that when someone is drowning, you don t ask if they can swim You just jump in and help Irena Sendler was never anyone to brag she always said that she simply did what she had to do What she did, however, was nothing short of extraordinary A young Catholic Polish social worker from Warsaw, she saved the lives of at least 2,000 Jewish children, smuggling them out of the Warsaw Ghetto, an unbearably overcrowded, unsanitary, and dangerous section of the city the Nazis sealed off during their World War II occupation The reader also learns of events in Irena s earlier life that led her to do what she did, as well as what she did after the war, a person unknown to most of the world This excellent translation is our best source on the life of Irena Sendler The research is thorough and come alive through the many interviews the author conducted with Irena herself and the people who knew her Most notable is that Ms Mieszkowska lets Irena tell her own story in her own words It provided much of the source material for the beautiful PBS documentary, Irena Sendler In the Name of Their Mothers Of particular interest to young readers are Irena s activities in secret, underground organizations, including Zegota Code names, forged documents, smuggling, and underground escape routes highlight the dangers Irena and her colleagues Most remarkable was the rescue of a six month old infant in a wooden carpenter s box That baby, Elzbieta Ficowska, would grow up to become one of Irena s closest and most trusted friends Her story is told here Persuading Jewish mothers to give up their young children was the most heart rending part of Irena s job How she kept careful notes of each child and stored them in a jar is one of the highlights of Ms Rubin s book And the author pays the ultimate homage to Irena by allowing her to state that she did not consider herself a hero she did what she had to do The real heroes, said Irena, were the mothers who gave up their babies, the Polish families who took them in, and the children themselves It was the request of Irena herself that her biography begin with the story of four high school girls from Uniontown, Kansas half a world away and half a century from the terrifying experiences that defined her early life That was Irena Sendler, a selfless person doing what she considered her moral duty

    This memoir about this amazing women was worth the read Irena Sendler saved thousands of children from the Warsaw Ghetto during WWII and has interesting and heart breaking stories to tell It was a slow read for me because I had to break it up with things that weren t so serious, but I m glad I read it.


  4. Natalie Natalie says:

    La intenci n de la autora al escribir la historia de Irene Sendler es muy buena, pero la estructura del libro me parece desorganizada y confusa, especialmente para las personas que no conocen nada de la historia de Polonia durante la II guerra Mundial.


  5. Emily Emily says:

    Not the best written book, but a fascinating account of a woman who savedJews mostly children than did Schindler, but about whom the world knows next to nothing Irena Sendler.


  6. Andrea Andrea says:

    I can not find this book anywhere After seeing the movie, I am very interested in learningabout amazing Irena.


  7. Ginger Miller Ginger Miller says:

    An excellent account from the great lady herself I think The author never crosses the line and Irena gets the final word on everything She did not trust reporters or the media and with good reason That explains so much of the misinformation about this amazing woman She speaksof those she and her friends saved then herself No one, reporter or author, was ever going to get her complete story After all she had been through I do not believe she trusted anyone enough to truly open up abo An excellent account from the great lady herself I think The author never crosses the line and Irena gets the final word on everything She did not trust reporters or the media and with good reason That explains so much of the misinformation about this amazing woman She speaksof those she and her friends saved then herself No one, reporter or author, was ever going to get her complete story After all she had been through I do not believe she trusted anyone enough to truly open up about herself This is a really good book but do not expect to learn muchabout Irena Sendler then one did before reading it I believe Irena took her true story to the grave

    O livro em si, a hist ria, o cont udo, tudo muito bom A tradu o p ssima n o no sentido do tradutor ser mau ou n o, mas porque se percebe perfeitamente que uma tradu o pressa com prazos apertados e com uma revis o nula.


  9. Ally Kumari Ally Kumari says:

    I felt the book was a bit disorganized and wantedof actual Irena, but that does not mean the information the publication carries are without value On the contrary More people need to read about Mrs Sendler.
