Irena Sendler

Sharing a post by Diane Sori on Facebook
Look at this lady – Let us never forget!
The world hasn’t just become wicked…it’s always been wicked.
The prize doesn’t always go to the most deserving.

Irena Sendler died 12 May 2008 (aged 98) in Warsaw, Poland.
During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a
plumbing/sewer specialist.

She had a ‘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.

President Obama won one year before becoming President for his work as a
community organizer for ACORN and Al Gore won also — for a slide show on Global Warming.

In MEMORIAL – 63 YEARS LATER

I’m doing my small part by forwarding this message. I hope you’ll consider doing the same…

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.

This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated!

Now, more than ever, with Iran, and others, claiming the HOLOCAUST to be ‘a
myth’.

It’s imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are
others who would like to do it again.

This post is intended to reach 40 million people worldwide! Join us and be a link in the memorial chain and help us distribute it around the world.

Please send this e-mail to people you know and ask them to continue the
memorial chain. Please don’t just delete it.

It will only take you a minute to pass this along…

    Thank you for this post. It touched me very deeply as these kind of heroic stories always do. When the Germans practiced their great evil, there were very brave souls who put themselves in great peril. This is a magnificent post.

    Fact: Irena Sendler died 12 May 2008.
    Fact: The Nobel Peace Prize is never awarded to somebody who is dead.
    Fact: Barack Obama didn’t even receive his party’s nomination until 28 August 2008, more than three months later. He won election as president on 4 November 2008, and was inaugurated on 20 January 2009. One may argue whether or not he deserved the Peace Prize (I personally think he got it just for being Not George W. Bush), but the idea that he somehow “stole” it from somebody else, particularly somebody who was dead, is absurd beyond description.
    Speculation: The person who originally wrote this did not do so in order to praise the worthy Irena Sendler, but rather in order to rail against Obama.
    Opinion: Somebody who uses the life story of a Righteous Gentile merely in order to bash a politician, particularly based on a studied avoidance of facts and logic, is a liar and a scoundrel, and deserves my contempt.
