Irena Sendler and the Children of the Warsaw Ghetto

click to download image


Using toolboxes, ambulances and other inventive measures, Irena Sendler, a Polish social worker, helped more than 400 Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto and into hiding during World War II. This is the only biography for children about this courageous woman. 

Arresting oil paintings pair with vivid prose to tell the story of a Polish social worker who concealed Jewish children from the Nazis. In her third collaboration with Farnsworth set during WWII, Rubin reveals Sendler's harrowing efforts to transport children to safety in body bags and coffins, as well as her success in concealing a list of the children's names (in hopes that they might be reunited with their families). Sendler's resolute face is luminous against Farnsworth's bleak depictions of the ghetto and in a passage describing her torture by the Gestapo. It's a haunting and unflinching portrait of human valiance. Ages 6–10.  Hardcover, 40 pages, isbn 9780823422517
