During World War II, Irena Sendler worked in the Warsaw Ghetto as a plumbing specialist. She spent most of her days there helping to smuggle Jewish children out before it was too late. Infants were often carried in the bottom of the toolbox she used and older children were often hidden in a burlap sack she kept in the back of her truck. It has been reported that Irena managed to smuggle and save about 2,500 children overall.
