The true story of a forgotten heroine of the Warsaw ghetto.

From the publisher:

1940: the Nazi army invades Poland. In Warsaw, Jews are confined to the ghetto, an entire neighborhood surrounded by walls. Whoever tries to escape is shot without warning. The only ones who can enter are members of the welfare department. Among them is Irena, who comes each day to bring food and support to those locked up in this hell, suffering from disease and malnutrition. Everyone here knows her; children love her. For Irena is a model of courage: she doesn't hesitate to stand up to the guards, always pushing the limits of what the Nazi occupiers permit. The day a young mother on her death bed entrusts Irena with her son's life, Irena sets out to smuggle the orphans out of the ghetto. In order to spare innocence from barbarism, she must be prepared to risk her life.

Irena Sendlerowa, a Polish resistant and activist, was one of the greatest heroines of the Second World War, saving nearly 2500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto. Yet she is forgotten by the history books. Happening upon article about her, Jean-David Morvan had an inspiration: Irena's life story must be told. With Séverine Tréfouël and David Evrard, he recounts in three albums the humanist struggle of this "mother of the children of the Holocaust."

Supported by drawings of great sensitivity, Irena succeeds in addressing without being heavy-handed a difficult, poignant, yet very contemporary subject... touching, moving, talking about yesterday to speak to today.

Morvan, Séverine Tréfouël, Jean-David
