I verified this story thru Snopes.com.
There recently was the death of a 98-year-old lady named Irena Sendler.
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 her tool box she carried, and she also 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 and course of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. She was caught, and the Nazi’s broke both her legs and 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 families. Most, of course, had been gassed. Those kids she helped were placed into foster family homes or adopted.
In 2007 Irena was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize …
Al Gore won for doing a slide show on Global Warming.
I cannot express the rage that went thru me when I read this. I was also reminded that schmucks like Jew haters like Jimmy Carter and Islamic Terrorist who Died of AIDS, Yasser Arafat were also winners of the Nobel “Peace” Prize. I guess credibility and character have nothing to do with winning what was once a “Noble” prize.
To us, Irene Sendler is the real prize
