Go to Snopes and read the LA Times obit for this amazing woman. It gives more information on her amazing life, the perils she faced from the Nazis and God's miraculous provision for her safety.
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/Sewerspecialist. 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, tortured 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 his inaccurate slide show on Global Warming and this year the Nobel Peace Prize went to Barack Hussein Obama who, as we all know, has accomplished little or NOTHING.
Let us never forget!
63 years later, In MEMORIAM - Irena Sendler 2/15/1910- 5/12/2009
The Most High God did not provide for her comfort - He protected her and assured her safety.
America would be well served to understand the difference.
