98 Year Old Irena Sendler Beat by Al Gore

From an e-mail I received:

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/Sewer specialist. She had an 'ulterior motive,'she knew what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, and she wanted to help save as many as she could.

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 eventually caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs and 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.

Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize; she did not win. Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.
Thanks Donna!

This woman should have without a doubt received the Nobel Peace Prize. Gore nor Obama, have nor will ever have demonstrated the courage this women did during the worse periods in history.
