Irena Sendler worked along side of other resistance members to smuggle about 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto (she personally smuggled around 400!) then provided them with false identity documents and shelter, outside the Ghetto, saving those children from the holocaust. The German occupiers eventually discovered her activities and she was arrested by the Gestapo, tortured, and sentenced to death, but she managed to evade execution and survive the war.
Prints are 8x10" on archival paper and packaged in a cellophane sleeve with chipboard backing to prevent bending, and a paragraph of her story. Watermark will not appear on the print.
The women in my “Heroes & Strangers” portrait series were selected because of their courage and bravery during World War II. There are thousands of stories like theirs; ordinary men and women being extraordinary lights during dark times.
To the faces of their rescued, they are heroes. To most of us, just generations apart, they are strangers at worst, forgotten at best.
My hope is that those who see these portraits memorize their names, know their faces, and are inspired by their stories to find courage for these present times.
