strzelecki_DVD In 1847, Sir Paul Edmund Strzelecki arrived in Ireland as a volunteer at a time when millions were dying of starvation and disease. Seeing suffering children awoke traumatic memories; his father died when he was four and his mother six years later.

The innovative scheme that Strzelecki established to manage and improve the situation was an astonishing success. It was instrumental in saving over 200,000 children from starvation. Yet his deeds have been largely forgotten or ignored by history.

This documentary is the story of Strzelecki's humanitarian work in Ireland.
