    Wonder Woman Actress Gal Gadot to Star In Film About Irena Sendler, a Christian Woman Who Rescued 2,500 Children from the Nazi’s in WWII

    Here at Project Inspired, we love highlighting inspiring movies especially ones with an inspiring Godly message. When we read the news of actress Gal Gadot playing a World War II Christian hero named Irene Smedler we knew we had to share!

    “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot is set to star in a new thriller about a real-life superhero. Gadot will be playing the role of Irena Sendler, a Christian woman who rescued over 2,500 Jewish children during World War II.

    On Friday, Gadot announced on Twitter that she and her husband are launching a production company called ‘Pilot Wave, ‘ and that she will be playing the main character in their first film “Irena Sendler.” 

    “Pilot Wave is taking off!” Gadot wrote, announcing the news. “I’m so excited this is finally out. @JaronVarsano and I have been working on this for quite some time and I just CAN’T wait to bring to life all the amazing stories we’re working on with all of our wonderfully talented partners.”

    In an interview with Deadline, Gadot shared that Pilot Wave will focus on stories that inspire them, and challenge them to create powerful content. 

    “As producers, we want to help bring stories that have inspired us to life,” Gadot said, according to Deadline. “Pilot Wave will create content that promotes the perspectives and experiences of unique people and produce impactful stories aimed at igniting the imagination.”

    Who is Irene Sendler?

    For their first project together, the husband and wife team will bring to life the story of Irena Sendler, a social worker who risked her life in World War II to help smuggle Jewish children out of the Poland ghetto and into safety. 

    Sendler, who was in charge of Żegota, the Polish Council to Aid Jews, used her position to rescue children from the Warsaw Ghetto, through underground sewer pipes, old buildings, and even in coffins and suitcases. 

    From there, she would find Christian families or nun convents to take in the children, and help change their names and create new identities. 

    She worked to rescue children until her devastating arrest in 1943, after which she was tortured by Nazi’s who wanted her to give up the names of her co-conspirators. After being placed on death row, she was able to escape imprisonment after a bribe was paid to her executioner, according to IrenaSendler.com

    “Following her arrest by the Gestapo during the height of the war, the drama becomes a race against time to save not only herself but the identities of the hidden thousands who’ll face certain execution,” the “Irena Sendler” movie description reads

    In 1965, Israel recognized Sendler’s actions by honoring her with the Righteous Among the Nations honor, and then in 1991, granting her honorary citizenship. Sendler was also recognized by Poland, which gave her the Gold Cross of Merit and the Order of the White Eagle, which is the highest honor in Poland. 

    In 2008, Sendler died at age 98, but not before she was allegedly nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
