Let me stress most emphatically that we who were rescuing children are not some kind of heroes. Indeed, that term irritates me greatly. The opposite is true.I continue to have pangs of conscience that I did so little. -Irena Sendler She was even humble. She was an extraordinary woman.

Irena Sendler... "a Polish woman who outfoxed the Nazis during WWII and saved the lives of thousands of Jewish children...." "Suppressed during the Communist regime in post-war Poland, and for decades afterwards...Sendler's lucid account of her life and work is a testament to the human capacity for moral courage in the face of depravity and evil during history's darkest times." -
