Just saw this today and thought I'd give it a plug. I don't watch television so I'll have to catch this on DVD. But it looks to be an outstanding documentary. Irena Sendler: In the Name of Their Mothers tells the story of this young Polish Catholic social worker who organized other women so that they could save thousands of Jewish children from extermination by the Nazis.Jewish babies were spirited out of the ghettos and placed with safe families, while older children were led out via sewers and secret passageways.
Have a look at the video and check out the PBS website for more information:
