Deception over Courage


 The prize doesn't always go to the most deserving.






Irena  Sendler





On the 12 of May 2008 a 98 year-old lady named  Irena Sendlerowa (commonly known as Irena Sendler) passed away from pneumonia in Warsaw .

During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a Nurse.
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 in the back of her truck.
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 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.

In 2007 Irena was up  for the Nobel Peace Prize ... She was not selected.

Al Gore won,  for a slide show on Global Warming.



 
She  died, whilst being nursed by one of the children she saved from the gas  chamber.

Please read  the little cartoon carefully, it's powerful.








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

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.

Claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it's imperative to make sure the  world never forgets, because there are others who would like you to forget so they can do it again.
