Irena Sendler helped to save many Jewish Polish children from the Nazis and their hateful brand of death. Irena was a Catholic nurse who saved the children in many ways. She taught the Jewish children Catholic prayers and sent the children to Christian homes to live out the war. She had saved a baby by putting the baby in a carpenter's box and carrying the box out of the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw. I liked the illustrations but the book seemed long for the picture style it was written.
