She truly deserved to be honored for saving so many children while risking her life . Be her memory blessed for eternity .
2. this article is a good start but the story deserves more

A great person like this will never win a knighthood or a nobel prize like certain other people i can think of.... But surely more can be broadcast about her, book, documentary?
3. True Humanist

its people like this lady that humanity thrives on. I wonder how many people there are alive now because of her.
4. Marwan: there is a film
Justine   (06.03.10)
There is a movie about her. I don't remember the title but it was broadcasted in the US and Canada. It was made recently. It's good, not great art, but well-made enough. Still, I often prefer documentaries on such subjects.

"The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler is a 2009 American television film directed by John Kent Harrison. The teleplay by Harrison and Lawrence John Spagnola, based on the 2005 biography The Mother of the Holocaust Children by Anna Mieszkowska, focuses on Irena Sendler, a Polish social worker who smuggled approximately 2,500 Jewish children to safety during World War II. The Hallmark Hall of Fame production, which was filmed on location in Riga, Latvia, was broadcast by CBS on April 19, 2009."
