A stirring and heartfelt documentary about Polish heroine Irena Sendler and her wartime conspiracy of women, some barely out of their teens, who outfoxed the Nazis and saved the lives of thousands of Jewish children. They were smuggled out in toolboxes, bags, through sewers and secret passages, and then placed with Polish families and in convents. Award-winning director Mary Skinner, daughter of a Polish orphan from Warsaw, will introduce the film and stay for a question and answer discussion. View details at www.irenasenderfilm.com.
