This is Irina Senzler, who forged nurses credentials to enter the Warsaw Ghetto and smuggle Jewish children to safety. Captured by the Nazis, she was tortured and sent to prison. A bribe from her friends freed her, and she returned to her activities. Ultimately she saved approximately 2,500 Jewish children from the Ghetto. She was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 and died in 2008 at 98.
