Irena Sendler saved the lives of over 2,500 children during World War II by smuggling them out of the Warsaw Ghetto. Irena kept the names of every child and their locations in jars burried in her friend’s garden. She was arrested, tortured and sentenced to death. Her captors broke both of her legs and feet but she remained silent and refused to give the names of her coconspirators. A friend successfully bribed a German guard for her release and she continued to smuggle children although having to remain in hiding herself. After the war, she attempted to reunite every child with surviving parents.
