Irena Sendler was living in Poland at the beginning of WWII, by which point the Germans had made helping Jews punishable by death. But Sendler, raised by a father who believed helping people – all people – who were in trouble was the right thing to do, continued her life as an activist and outspoken critic of antisemitic policies despite the risk to herself and her family.
“I was taught by my father that when someone is drowning you don’t ask if they can swim, you just jump in and help.”
