Our Debt To Irene Sandler

REMEMBER THIS LADY! Look at this lady - Let us never forget!

[With thanks to Angela Frances Monchar]

Irena Sendler

During WWII, Irena Sandler was given permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an 'ulterior motive'. She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews (being German). Irena bravely smuggled infants out of the Warsaw Ghetto, in the bottom of the tool box she carried and in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger children). 

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 loud barking covered the kids/infants noises. 

During her time doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 children/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 underneath 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 of them had been gassed. 

The children she saved were placed into foster family homes or adopted. Last year Irena was nominated 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 (A mockery of the once prestigious Nobel Prize).

In MEMORIAM - 63 YEARS LATER 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!
