IN THE NAME OR THEIR MOTHERS tells the remarkable story of Irena Sendler and a group of young Polish women who outwitted the Nazis to save thousands of Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto during World War II. At list, 2,500 of the children they had hidden survived the war and many were later re-united with their Jewish families. However, for decades, they could not tell their stories. The new Communist regime in Poland silenced former members of the Polish Resistance and most of Sendler's liaisons were persecuted or were forced into exile. Over 65 years later they can finally speak about their wartime work as the once hidden Jewish children return to Warsaw to re-unite with their Polish protectors.
