Elżbieta Fickowska was six months old when her Jewish parents placed her in the custody of Irena Sendler, a Polish woman who, at the peril of her own life, tried to rescue Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto. The only thing Elżbieta had with her was a little spoon with her name and birthday engraved on it. There was one million of Jewish children in Europe in 1939. During the war, 90 percent of them were annihilated. A half a million of those children were living in Poland. Approximately 5,000 were rescued. Most of them don’t know their real name or date of birth. This is the first film that shows a Jewish child saved during World War II who still lives in Poland.
