10th anniversary of Polish WWII humanitarian social worker Irena Sendler's death

By Filip Warwick

This month of May represents the 10th anniversary of the death of Irena Sendler, a Polish Socialist humanitarian worker credited with having saved the lives of some 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto during World War II.

It comes as Israel -  a country born out of the horrors of the holocaust in which some six million Jewish people were killed - marks its 70th anniversary.

RFI’s Filip Warwick spoke with Elzbieta Ficowska, one of the Jewish children saved by Irena Sendler.
