60yrs later

(Hat Tip to "SK")

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.

Tat

  Most  had been  gassed. Those kids she
helped got placed into  foster family homes or
 adopted.
 

Recently,
 Irena was up  for the Nobel Peace Prize … She was
 
not
 selected.

However,
 Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming  and
Barack Obama won for a speech on
 peace.

  1. Irena Sendler may have been denied the Nobel Peace Price but the smile on her face and twinkle in her eye still in her later years reveals an inner peace that passes understanding. There are people that walk this earth with such courage it is almost impossible to find words to describe the profound impact they have on us when we come in contact with them or hear their life story. Irena is one of those people. Thank you for passing her story along to your readers Major.

  2. This is what true hero’s are made of.It is a shame we teach our children to emulate others who are so shallow, IE movie stars, sports stars, giving awards to those who are not worthy. Her heart and faith saved so many.Thank you for paying tribute to her by printing her story.

  3. Jesus shines vividly in her countenance…her eyes, her smile will forever out shine their works; obviously accomplish more than they together, ever will.

  4. She is a saint, and deserves to be remembered throughout history. It boggles the mind to think that she was passed over for the Nobel Peace Prize while twerps like Gore and Obama got it. They cheapen the Nobel; Irena put her very life where her mouth was and paid a terrible price. She is worthy of great honor by all wh love justice.

  5. The Nobel prize farce has become a leftist glee club for the elites to award themselves “honours”. It is more of an honor and indicates a good moral standing NOT to be picked for one.
    We all could learn courage from this woman. Bless you Grandmother.

  6. I’m just doing a website associated with this. In case you make it possible for, I’d like to make use of some of your respective articles. And with total refernce of program. Thanks ahead of time.

  7. Incredible person and I’m glad to read her story. Shows you the power of what just one person can do. Particularly at a time of moral collapse like World War II & the Holocaust.
