Lady Irena Sendler was a Polish Catholic social worker who served in the Polish Underground and the Zegota resistance organisation in German nazi-occupied Warsaw during World War II.
The world hasn't just become wicked...it' s always been wicked. The prize doesn't always go to the most deserving.
And Lady Sendler saved 2,500 Polish children qualified by the nazis as "jewish", by smuggling the children out of the Warsaw Ghetto.
Assisted by some two dozen other Zegota members, she provided them with false documents, and sheltered them in individual and group children's homes outside the Ghetto.
She was caught, and the nazis broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely.
Lady 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 reunite the family. Most had been taken to the nazi concentration camps, where they perished. Those kids She helped get placed into foster family homes or adopted.
Last year - 70+ years on!!! - Lady 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 organiser for ACORN
Al Gore won it also - for a slide show on his outright wrong and scientifically unsustainable theory on "global warming" !
IN MEMORIAM - 70+ YEARS LATER
We are doing our small part by reminding of this anniversary.
We hope you'll consider doing the same...
It is now more than 70 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.
This story is being written as a memorial deed, in memory of more than 60 million members of all nations of the world, 20 million Russians, almost 6 million Polish lives were lost, which means that every 6th Polish citizen was butchered during WWII - the highest blood price for this war among the world's nations! This hekatombe included everybody, including those of Catholic, Orthodox, Judaic, Muslim and other religious backgrounds, and thousands of their priests.
During WWII 60+ million humans
were murdered, massacred, mutilated, raped, burnt alive, starved to death and humiliated in any possible way!
It is imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are some who would and could do it again.
Please send this story to people you know and ask them to keep it alive for future generations.
