Abstract

The story -- never told before -- of how Polish nuns in World War II saved hundreds of Jewish lives in German-occupied Poland. Forty-nine convents and orphanages were involved in protecting the children and the most authoritative estimates indicate 1200 Jewish young people survived the war in these shelters.
