    In 1942 one young social worker, Irena Sendler, was granted access to the Warsaw Ghetto as a public health specialist. While she was there, she began to understand the fate that awaited the Jewish families who were unable to leave.

She started smuggling children out of the walled district, convincing her friends and neighbors to hide them.
