There recently was a death of a 98
year-old lady named Irena. During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in
theWarsawGhetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. 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 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 of course had been gassed. Those kids
she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.
Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize ...
She was not selected.
Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.
