The Story of Irena Sendler (dir. Andrzej Wolf)

Published by : PISF
The film is based on unique and exclusive interviews with the heroine, which were recorded and shot during the last days of her life. Ms. Sendler tells her story of saving the lives of the poorest children imprisoned behind the walls of the Warsaw Ghetto. She recounts the complex of life- risking procedures of giving the children new identities, falsifying their documents, ways of smuggling them outside the confines of the ghetto and ultimately finding these children relatively safe haven in polish homes and families.. the story is depicted using film resources from polish, American and Russian archives, and supplemented by feature film sequences, in which Irena Sendler is played by Sonia Bohosiewicz.

The world premiere of the film will take place on January 27, in the seat of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg in the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust.
