Irena Sendler – Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Irena Sendler recently died at age 98. Few know her story.

Irena Sendler

During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist.  She had a motive since she knew the Nazi’s plans for the Jews.

Irena smuggled infants out of the Ghetto in the bottom of the tool box she carried. For larger kids, she used a burlap sack she carried in the back of her truck.

She had a dog in the back of her truck that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.  The soldiers wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.

Over many years, she smuggle out and saved 2500 kids and infants. One day, the Nazi’s caught her and broke her legs and arms and beat her severely.

Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out of the Ghetto and kept the list in a glass jar,  buried under a tree in her back yard.  After the war, she tried to locate any parents that survived.  Of course, most had been gassed.

The kids she saved were placed in foster homes or adopted.

Last year Irena was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize ….. They did not select Irena.

Instead, they gave the Peace Prize to Al Gore for his slide show on Global Warming and to 800 or more university professors who support the United Nations global warming agenda.
