Irena Sendler: In the Name of their Mothers, tells the story of Irena Sendler, one of a group of young Polish women who defied the Nazis to rescue Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto. She saw the suffering of Warsaw’s Jews, reached out to her most trusted colleagues, and together, in the face of enormous danger and personal risk, they rescued over 2500 Jewish children from certain death.
Following the screening of the film, Eli Rubenstein, Director of
the March of the Living (Canada) and Founder & Director of March of
Remembrance and Hope Canada, will discuss the role of Irena Sendler
and provide insight into the stories of people who defied the tide of Nazi
destruction by risking their lives to save others.
Selected materials from Centennial Library’s John & Molly Pollock
Holocaust Collection will be on display.
Hosted by: Centennial College Libraries in partnership with Centre for Organizational
