Book Description:

Irena Sendler said, "There are two kinds of people: good and bad. Nationality, race, and religion do not play any role; what is important is which human you are." This Nobel Peace Prize nominee was largely unknown in America—until a group of teenagers in Kansas discovered her inspiring and heartbreaking life story.
