I remember what Father used to say: “If you see a man drowning, you must try to save him–even if you can’t swim.”
“Another Holocaust story?” might be an understandable reaction to “The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler,” but that would do a disservice to this fine Hallmark Hall of Fame production. It’s hard to think, in fact, of a story possessing a more poignant connection to the next “send the very best” holiday — Mother’s Day — chronicling as it does Polish Jews who gave up their children in the face of the growing Nazi threat, and Christians who selflessly took them in. So yes, by all means, another Holocaust story, provided that it’s this true, gripping and unfamiliar.
