Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker, became a most remarkable heroine of World War II. During the Nazi occupation of Poland, she became the leader of a large group of compatriots who smuggled children out of Warsaw's Jewish Ghetto and into safe homes, farms and convents. Utilizing extraordinary schemes involving ambulances, suitcases, and even wheelbarrows, she persisted in her fearless determination to combat evil.
The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler tells the compelling story of a woman who would go on to become a nominee for a Nobel Peace Prize. Anna Paquin, Goran Visnjic and Marcia Gay Harden star in this Hallmark Hall of Fame movie. The DVD runs 100 minutes.
