Translated from Polish by Natela Gavasheli
During the World War II Irena Sandler, a Roman Catholic and a social worker, was actively involved in the Polish Underground resistance. Some accounts say she saved more than 2,500 children getting them out of the Warsaw ghetto on forged documents. The only misfortune of those children was that they were born Jewish, or had other ‘unclean, non-Arian blood’. The book is dedicated to Irena Sandler’s memory, as well as to those courageous women who made it possible to save children from the Nazi camps.
