As a social worker, Irena had access to the Warsaw Ghetto, making it possible for her to rescue the daughter of a Jewish friend and safely hide the young girl with a Catholic family.

Irena was eventually captured by the Gestapo. Her heroic efforts were honoured by a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.

Truly Courageous
5 stars By Amy P, Apr 11 2013
What a heart wrenching story of such a courageous woman in the midst of such turmoil. The story is not only true and amazing but completely inspiring through an unbelievably horrible time.

This will touch your heart
5 stars By Jo, Oct 10 2012
This movie is definitely unforgettable. A true story about a Polish social worker during WWII. It really makes you think about life then and how hard and unfair it was for Jews. It also shows the kindness of people, some willing to help the Jews, even though it is dangerous for them. Truly a courageous heart.

Touching
4 stars By gmtalltrim, Jul 07 2012
I loved watching this true story of the courage that people showed in helping the suffering Jews in Poland during WWII.It shows that the saying, " evil reigns when good people do nothing" was very true when too many people feared for their own lives instead of dying to self  living unto God. This humble  social worker shows what great things God can do if we are only willing to be available to do His will. He supplys everything we need to carry out His will in our lives. Her life was richly rewarded here on Earth for her dangerous work in rescuing Jewish children  God will also reward her when she enters her eternal home with Jesus.
