Irena Sendler
Irena Sendler

She was a Polish Social Worker in Warsaw during World War Two and is an iconic figure of righteousness and resistance who coordinated a network of rescuers that enabled many hundreds of Jewish children to escape the horrors of the Warsaw Ghetto.  She was recognised by Yad Vashem as Righteous Among the Nations in 1965.  To mark the tenth anniversary of her death, 2018 has been officially designated in Poland 'The Year of Irena Sendler'.

Organised by Learning from the Righteous together with the Embassy of Poland
