Irena Sendler - More Than a Footnote

Irena Sendler, often referred to as the female Schindler, risked her life during World War II to save 2500 Jewish children in the Warsaw Ghetto. Disguised as a nurse she entered the Ghetto to rescue the children. She recorded the names of each child and where they were placed. Irena worked with the underground resistance, known as the Zegota. She was arrested, interrogated, tortured, and sentenced to death by the Nazi’s. This is her story.

Beth Lundy
DIRECTOR
Elizabeth "Beth" Lundy

Beth Lundy is in her senior year at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. She set to graduate with a double major in Journalism and Screen Studies (JASS) and History.

Born in Livonia, Michigan, where she currently resides with her husband Gregg, two sons Matthew and Mark and her dog JJ.

She is a storyteller. Characters, plot-lines, events and multi-sensory images dance through her head, yearning to break free, to become what they are destined to be. Her belief is that to move someone with words or visualization, whether they laugh or cry (or both) is powerful. She is destined to produce stories and after 30 successful years in the financial industry she sought to fulfill her dream of storytelling.

Her projects include the documentary "True Impact: Celebrating the Stamleos Legacy" for the Alfred Berkowitz Gallery, at University of Michigan-Dearborn. She also produced "MiCrossroads" the University of Michigan-Dearborn's pilot for their weekly TV magazine program.
