OriginEdit

Irena Sendlerowa aka Irena Sendler was a Polish nurse/social worker who served in the Polish Underground during World War II, and as head of children's section of Żegota, an underground resistance organization in German-occupied Warsaw. Assisted by some two dozen other Żegota members, Sendler smuggled some 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto and then provided them with false identity documents and with housing outside the Ghetto, saving those children during the Holocaust.

EffectsEdit

Given to Irena by one of the Jewish children she saved during the Holocaust, it became imbued with her bravery and persistence to smuggle children out of the camps and save them. When the dreidel is spun, children and the user appear invisible in the eyes of adults, allowing them to escape with ease. Children however can plainly see them.
