"In 1939, right after the Germans invaded, Warsaw began to see trainloads of blonde, blue-eyed children being taken to "Germanization" camps in Germany. Everyone in Warsaw knew about a certain group of women...when the trains pulled in, they tried to convince the German guards to accept bribes in exchange for some of the children." Irena Sendler was one of these women. Later she did everything she could to save Jewish children, including the ones in this photo. (1944)
