Abstract:

Sendlerowa (b. 1910), a Pole and a member of Żegota, was the head of the Department of Aid for Jewish Children. Sendlerowa and her team organized the rescue of ca. 2,500 children, finding them families to live with and supplying "Aryan" papers. The book comprises large sections of Sendlerowa's memoirs (never published), which she began to write in 1997, and conversations held with Mieszkowska. She spoke about many people, Poles and Jews, who were involved in the activities of her department. In October 1943 Sendlerowa was arrested by the Gestapo and tortured; she was freed due to Żegota's bribing of a Gestapo soldier. She then lived in Warsaw with a false identity, wanted by the Gestapo. She was the only person who knew where the hidden children were and what their real names were. Describes, also, her postwar activities and problems. In 1968 she was forced to retire because of her strong ties with Jews all over the world, including in Israel.
