Sendler inspires

Re "WWII savior of young Jews," May 13

As I picked up The Times this morning, I braced myself for the usual tales of mendacity, criminality, greed and blind ambition. But there was a story of breathtaking inspiration about Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker who had risked her life again and again to save Jews -- mostly children -- during the Holocaust; a woman of such courage, love and transcendent goodness that, looking at the rest of the news, one can only wonder whether she was the same species as the rest of us.
