2:00 PM Film: The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler
This riveting film, starring Anna Paquin, tells the story of the remarkable and unlikely WWII heroine who saved the lives of 2,500 Jewish children in German-occupied Poland. As a social worker, Irena had access to the Warsaw Ghetto, and at great personal risk, devised extraordinary schemes to sneak the children past Nazi Guards. She was honored in 2007 with a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. (1 hr. 35 min.)
