Summary/Abstract: In her latest book Sendlerowa. W ukryciu [Sendler. In Hiding], Anna Bikont reopens the discussion in Polish literary studies on the notion, borders, and new horizons of biography. Bikont does not reproduce well‑known facts from previous publications devoted to the heroine or stories heard. She presents Irena Sendler in a new light, above all as a woman, a pre‑feminist, a wife, and a social worker. Basing on previously unknown sources, documents, and strengthening the narrative with numerous photographs, Bikont in a sense creates a synthesis of Sendler’s life and activity.
