    It makes me cry every time I think about her. I firmly believe that if anyone goes to heaven, she will. I only wish that I were a small fraction as worthy.

    Holocaust horror, makes me feel overwhelmed, and devastating. Irena was a light in the darkness. I know perfectly what she meant when she said: "I continue to have pangs of conscience that I did so little".
    I´m a mother of five children, and everytime I read or see something about the "Shoa" I feel so much pain inside of me for those who were killed in such an horrific way. I think about these mothers separated from their children, or looking how they were starving to death. This woman should be never forgotten. It is our duty to teach to our children all about human kindness, telling them that even in the darkness, surrounded by evildoing, we can act in good faith. Verónica.

    I am a 53 year old woman who went to predominately Polish Catholic school for 12 years. I think it is a disgrace that I have never heard of this remarkable woman before yesterday. I am amazed and grateful that a woman like this lived to be able to do the wonderful things she did. I am re-inspired by this woman's life. I don't know who or how, but my wish is that she becomes a part of all history programs in all schools. Future generations should not have to wait until middle-age to learn of this woman. I thank God that this woman was able to accomplish her heroic deeds. I hope she knew that what she did affected more people than just the children she saved. She was a true hero.

    I agree. With all the negative things we hear today, we all need to know of Irena and others like her. Our children need to know that we don't always hear of all the good and memorable people who have done extraordinary things. For some reason, the news seems to be more about what is wrong than what is right. I hope more is done to bring this wonderful woman's life story to surface, perhaps in school history books. God Bless and keep her.

    In a small village in rural Poland the legacy of Irena Sendler and a local history teacher inspire children to care for a long-forgotten Jewish cemetery.
