THE COURAGEOUS HEART OF IRENA SENDLER - CBS April 19, 2009 at 9:00 PM

Thought for the day:

THE COURAGEOUS HEART OF IRENA SENDLER - CBS April 19, 2009 at 9:00 PM

My friend sent me this information - it's a movie that is on Hallmark tonight that I'm going to watch - thought I'd share it with you.

"The Hallmark Hall of Fame film by renowned TV director and producer John Kent Harrison is based on the true story of 2007 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker, who was part of the Polish underground during World War II and was arrested and brutally tortured by the Nazi's for saving the lives of nearly 2,500 Jewish children by smuggling them out of the Warsaw ghetto. On the day of her scheduled execution she was rescued by "Zegota”, the underground network with which she worked to save the Jewish children. She lived in Poland to the age of 98.
Canadian-born actress Anna Paquin, who plays Irena Sendler won an Oscar as a child for her work in "The Piano" and more recently a Golden Globe Award".

Love,
Chatty

The underground workers were so brave...
