09/20/08 Weekend Grif.Net – Irena Sendler

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, (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
children and 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.

Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected.
