"This basic thirty-two-page biography opens with Irena Sendler’s early morning arrest by the Gestapo in 1943. It then goes back to describe her childhood in Poland and her family’s close relationships with their Jewish neighbors. It continues with a brief description of the Nazi invasion of Poland and a more detailed account of Irena’s efforts to distribute typhus vaccines and other needed supplies inside the Warsaw Ghetto. An entire chapter is dedicated to Sendler’s work to save Jewish children from deportation and death by sneaking them outside of the Ghetto and finding safe places for them to hide. . . . Text boxes provide helpful background information and photographs, “Did You Know?” facts, and definitions of terms are also included on each page. . . . While other similar biographies are available, this is a nice resource that complements the two picture book biographies..." - Association of Jewish Libraries, News and Reviews
