It is April 2007, Bouden Little Children House in Warsaw is hosting a celebration of awarding Irena Sandler with the Order of the Smile – a medal given by children. The festive event is only a pretext to analyze a kind of phenomenon. Why does the story of Irena Sandler appeal so strongly to the imaginations and emotions of contemporary teens? Irena Sendler managed to save thousands of Jewish children during the WWII, that is why she became such a special person for all those who owe her their lives.
