"Whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved
an entire world." - The Talmud
Libby Skala brings to dramatic life the true story of Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker who defies Nazi law to rescue 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto during WWII. For decades, her heroism remains hidden behind the iron curtain until one day, three Protestant high school students from rural Kansas stumble upon a brief mention of her in an old magazine clipping. Their curiosity evolves into an award-winning National History Day project, and leads them across the ocean to Irena's doorstep, where they learn first-hand how a single individual "answering the need of her heart" can change the course of the world.
