The girl of glass flowers

The names written on thin cigarette maps were now thousands. A list of over 2,000 names of Jewish children alongside false identities that would have saved them. Since the Nazis had created the Warsaw ghetto, Irena had convinced their parents to hide them to hide them with Catholic families or convents throughout the city and the countryside. At the war ended the archive, as 10 called her, would be served to return their identity to children. Very few people were aware of the existence of those lists, they were too dangerous information to share. The day she is picked up and conducted at the Warsaw Gestape headquarters, Irena is terrified. In the autumn of 1943, in Poland occupied by the Nazis, and perhaps throughout Europe, there was no more frightening place than that. Everyone knew what happened in there, and she prayed to do it to hold back to torture, not to betray anyone. Many vines depended on her. She's comrades of her illegal network, her loved her Adam of her, also in resistance, all the Poles who offered their help. And especially children. Only she could decipher those lists and if she had happened to her, everything would have been lost. While the car approached her lugubrious destination of her, her irena thought she had to do it, she had promised her to those parents who had climbed to Triblinka trains with the only relief of having saved their children. She still didn't know that only that army of defenseless and hidden children could save her.
