For the first time comes a book based on the life and work of Irena Sendler, a woman who saved no less than 2,500 Jewish children. Until a few years back, she was lesser known than Oscar Schindler, who also saved over a thousand Jewish people from what would be certain death. This book, a first and that too in Marathi, has been written by Abhijit Thite by gleaning information from various sources.. Irena Sendler was active in a political environment fraught with dangers and punishment accorded to those who helped a Jew. Yet, she fought on at great danger to her own life, rescuing innocent and helpless children who would have, if not for her, ended up in a gas chamber or as one of the specimens used by the Nazi doctors for horrible experiments.
