Irena Sendler

There  recently was a death of a 98 year-old lady named  Irena. During WWII,  Irena, got  permission to work in  the Warsaw Ghetto, as  a Plumbing/Sewer specialist.

She had an  ’ulterior motive’ ….. She KNEW what the Nazi’s  plans were for the Jews, (being  German.) Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom  of the tool  box she carried and she  carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack,  (for larger kids..)

She also  had a dog in the back that she trained to bark  when the Nazi soldiers let her  in and out of  the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing  to do with the dog and the barking  covered the kids/infants noises.. During her time  of doing this, she managed  to smuggle  out and save 2500 kids/infants. She was caught,  and the Nazi’s broke both her legs,  arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a  record of the names of all the  kids she  smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried  under a tree in her back  yard.

After the  war, she tried to locate any parents that may have  survived it and reunited the family.  Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got  placed into foster family  homes or  adopted.

Last year  Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize  ….. She was  not selected. Al Gore  won, for a slide show on Global  Warming.
(WTF??!! and Obama won one too for doing nothing!! what has this world turned into??)
