Synopsis: The Courageous Heart of Irena SendlerITALIC is the inspiring World War II drama about Catholic social worker Irena Sendler (played by Oscar winner Anna Paquin) who saved the lives of 2,500 Jewish babies and young children living in the Warsaw ghetto. Using fake identification to pass herself as a nurse and risking her life, Irena was able to enter and exit the ghetto, enabling her to smuggle the children safety.
