Irena Sendler

Irena Sendler was born to catholic parents in Poland in 1910. She grew in a Jewish town where her father treated Jewish patients while other doctors refused to help. As a young woman she was furios at the constant discrimination against her Jewish friends: at university she publicly denounced segregation in classrooms.


The biblical story of Judith features in countless works of art: but the most iconic of all was painted by Artemisia Gentileschi  when she was just 19 years old. In her life she visited the  subject of  Judith repeatedly, focusing on the moment of  Holoferne’s  beheading: in the painting that Artemisia finished in 1613, Judith has pushed up her sleeves and wedged her knee on the bed to counter Holoferne’s resistance. The picture is highly realistic and its effect is a very direct emotional appeal to viewers.
