For desperate families trapped inside the Warsaw ghetto in 1942 with small children, one name was whispered urgently. It was the name of a young social worker in her thirties with the courage to take staggering risks and to save over 2,000 of those children from death and deportation. Granted access to the ghetto as a public health specialist, Irena Sendler began by smuggling orphaned children out of the walled district and convincing her friends and neighbours to hide them. Soon, she began the perilous work of going from door to door and asking Jewish families to trust her with their young children. Driven to extreme measures and with the help of local Warsaw tradesman, Jewish residents, a network of mothers and her star-crossed lover in the Polish resistance, Irena Sendler ultimately smuggled thousands of children past the Nazis, making dangerous trips through city's sewers, hiding them in coffins and under overcoats at check points, and slipping through secret passages in abandoned buildings. At immense personal risk, Irena Sendler did something even more astonishing: she kept a secret list buried in a jar under an old apple tree in her garden. On it were the names and true identities of these Jewish children, recorded so that after the war their families could find them. Celebrated for her courage, Sendler was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, the year before her death at the age of 98. The story of Irena Sendler - and of the children she saved - has until now never been told in a compelling narrative account.

Tilar J. Mazzeo, autora bestseller de The New York Times, nos presenta una historia inspiradora sobre la extraordinaria y apasionante vida de Irena Sendler, una conmovedora versi�n femenina de Oskar Schindler. La historia de una mujer que tom� grandes riesgos para salvar a 2 500 ni�os de la muerte y la deportaci�n en Polonia, durante la ocupaci�n de los nazis en la Segunda Guerra Mundial. En 1942, a una joven trabajadora social, Irena Sendler, se le concedi� acceso al gueto de Varsovia como especialista en salud p�blica. Una vez dentro, fue de puerta en puerta para rescatar a los ni�os de las familias jud�as atrapadas en el gueto. Empez� a sacarlos a escondidas del distrito amurallado, convenciendo a sus amigos y vecinos de que los ocultaran en sus casas. Impulsada a tomar medidas extremas y con la ayuda de una red de comerciantes locales, residentes del gueto y su amante, perteneciente a la resistencia jud�a, ella logr� salvar a miles de ni�os de los nazis. Irena hizo peligrosos viajes a trav�s de las alcantarillas de la ciudad, ocult� a los ni�os en ata�des, los coloc� bajo abrigos en los puestos de control y los condujo a trav�s de pasadizos secretos en edificios abandonados. Y luego mantuvo listas secretas enterradas en botellas debajo de un viejo manzano en el jard�n de la casa de una amiga. En las listas estaban los nombres y las verdaderas identidades de los ni�os jud�os, escritos cuidadosamente con la esperanza de que sus familiares pudieran encontrarlos despu�s de la guerra. Aunque no pudo prever que m�s del noventa por ciento de estas familias morir�a. La vida de Irena Sendler, sin duda, es mucho m�s que una muestra de apego a la vida y cari�o a los ni�os: es un gesto deslumbrante de amor a la humanidad. La cr�tica ha opinado: "Los ni�os de Irena teje en una fascinante historia el relato de una ciudad devastada, la depravaci�n nazi y el extraordinario valor f�sico y moral de aquellos que decidieron responder a la inhumanidad con compasi�n. �ste es un libro que se queda contigo mucho despu�s de pasar la �ltima p�gina." -Chaya Deitsch, autora de Here and There: Leaving Hasidism, Keeping My Family- "Un relato fundamental, aunque aterrador, de la historia del Holocausto que hasta ahora era poco conocido: el de c�mo miles de ni�os fueron rescatados del gueto de Varsovia por una mujer polaca con mucho valor y una extraordinaria calidad moral." -Joseph Kanon, autor de Leaving Berlin- "Mazzeo relata un rayo de esperanza en tiempos de desesperaci�n en esta biograf�a conmovedora de una mujer que se neg� a darse por vencida." - Kirkus Reviews- "Si bien �sta no es la primera biograf�a de Irena Sendler, su concisi�n y legibilidad presentar�n a muchos lectores a una mujer realmente valiente y notable, quien inici� y encabez� "un gran esfuerzo colectivo de decencia." -Publishers Weekly- ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A New York Post Best Book of 2016One of Kirkus Reviews'' Ten Most Anticipated Nonfiction Books of Fall 2016From the New York Times bestselling author of The Widow Clicquot comes an extraordinary and gripping account of Irena Sendler--the "female Oskar Schindler"--who took staggering risks to save 2,500 children from death and deportation in Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II.In 1942, one young social worker, Irena Sendler, was granted access to the Warsaw ghetto as a public health specialist.

Irena Krzyzanowska was born in Poland on February 15, 1910. She was raised by her Catholic parents to respect and love people regardless of their ethnic background or social status. Her father, a physician, died from typhus in 1917. He was the only doctor in who would treat the poor Jewish victims of this tragic disease. He told seven-year-old Irena, "If you see someone drowning you must try to rescue them, even if you cannot swim." In 1939 the Nazis swept through Poland and imprisoned the Jews in ghettos, where they were first starved and finally murdering them in killing camps. Irena was a social worker and saw the Jewish people drowning. She resolved to do what she could to rescue the children. With a network of brave Poles, mostly women, she smuggled 2,500 children out of the Warsaw ghetto and hid them safely. Using the code name of "Jolanta," Sendler took great risks-obtaining forged papers for the children, disguising herself as an infection control nurse, and diverting German occupation funds for the support of children in hiding. She entered the Warsaw ghetto, sometimes two or three times a day, and convinced Jewish parents to surrender their children to her. Sendler gave the babies sedatives and smuggled them past Nazi guards in gunny sacks, boxes, and coffins. She helped the older children escape through the sewers, secret openings in the walls, the courthouse, and churches. She and her network used any clever means they could think of to evade the Nazis. Once outside the ghetto walls, Sendler gave the children false names and forged documents, and placed the children in convents, orphanages, or with Polish families. Her hope was to return their Jewish identities and reunite them with their families after the war. She kept tissue paper lists with the child's real name, their families' names, and the false "Polish" names. She saved the lists in glass jars and buried them under an apple tree. In 1943, Irena Sendler was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death by the Nazis. She would not divulge the location of the lists nor her Polish underground contacts. At the last moment, a Nazi guard was bribed and her freedom secured. She bore the scars and disability of her torture for the rest of her life. Irena married and her story was buried and forgotten for many years. Her courage and resourcefulness was recognized by Israel in 1965 when she was awarded a medal. Then Irene Sendler was discovered by three teens from Kansas in 1999. They were working on a National History Day project and her story went viral when they discovered she was still alive, ninety years old, living with relatives in an apartment in Warsaw. She passed away on May 12, 2008, at the age of 98. Her story reminds us that one person can make a difference.

‘The White Eagle’ is a work of historical fiction in the backdrop of wartime Poland, specifically the ghettos of World War II. As a work of historical fiction, there is serious historical research involved on matters such as the genesis of Soviet-Polish antagonism and the events that led to the invasion of Poland in 1939. But ultimately, this is a story of ultimate human courage and sacrifice. The protagonist, Irena Sendler, was a hero of the Polish Resistance. She was a Polish Catholic social worker who along with nine of her associates smuggled Jewish children out of the ghetto and placed them with convents and foster families. She risked her life and saved the lives of more than 2,500 children from imminent death and gave them a new life. The children saved by her are known as “Irena Sendler’s Children”. Using the known historical facts about her life as a scaffolding, the author fills in the blanks. The result is a gripping story – an adventure story of magnificent, operatic proportions.

Irena Sendler arbetade inom socialvården och var därigenom en av de få som fritt kunde passera genom kontrollstationerna till Warszawas getto. Det gav henne möjlighet att smuggla in livsviktig medicin och mat till den judiska befolkningen gärningar som vid upptäckt hade straffats med döden. När hotet om deportering till koncentrationslägren växte gömde Irena tusentals barn i portföljer, i likkistor, i jutesäckar och smugglade ut dem ur gettot. Utanför murarna fick barnen nya identiteter, men Irena skrev ner deras verkliga namn och adresser på papperslappar som sedan sparades i en flaska och gömdes under ett äppelträd i en väns trädgård. Irenas förhoppning var att föräldrarna skulle kunna hitta sina barn efter kriget. Hon kunde aldrig föreställa sig att mer än nittio procent av barnens familjer skulle dö, de flesta i gaskamrarna i Treblinka. Tilar J. Mazzeo berättar om en fasansfull tid i historien då en sällsynt modig kvinna, och hennes många förtrogna, riskerade sina liv för att göra det enda rätta: rädda barnen i Warsawas getto undan förintelsen.
