REMEMBER THIS LADY!!! Irena Sendler


Irena Sendler
Died 12 May 2008 (aged 98)
Warsaw, Poland

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 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 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.

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.

In MEMORIAM - 63 YEARS LATER
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.

This is a memorial chain, 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!

Now, more than ever, with Iran, and others, claiming the HOLOCAUST to be 'a myth'.
It's imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are others who would like to do it again..

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Matthew 22:36-40

  4. We study about Irena and other heroic rescuers each year in our Holocaust unit. She truly exemplifies no greater love has a man than this: that he lay down his life for a friend. She did it over and over and over. What an inspiration she is~

  7. Hello,

    I am sharing with some of those on my "follow" list the book my Pastor just released. Looks to be a great tool for learning to walk this walk.

  8. Thanks for sharing this. The popularity contests that give people fame for being heros when they are really fools seem ironic. She was a true hero and I am glad you are sharing the story.

  9. Irena will receive a prize from God. Against all odds she did what God told her to do and her reward is in heaven. I have heard her story before and it is worth repeating to encourage others who do their part.

    The unfairness of the Nobel prize given to the underserving makes me want to spit! :-) Thank you for sharing this story on Tell Me a Story." Also thank you for ordering my book, "Rescue the Stories Book One."

  10. I am researching cost to ship to Australia. UPS wants just under $100. to send one small book, which is not affordable. I am requesting a cost price from US post office. Other wise I will refund your money and if you receive PDF I will send you my book by PDF e-mail.

    1. The Post Office first class was $10.00 and then you thought of a way to cover the shipping. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness.

      By the way, your awesome book available on Amazon.com was much enjoyed by me. I recommend it to anyone who likes a romantic novel with a good plot.

  15. Dear Crystal Mary, this story is both poignant and inspiring. Denying the Holocaust seems as futile to me and nonsensical as denying that the run rises each day. It happened; it was a dark and evil time for humanity. And we must never forget or we are doomed to live this again.

    And I thing we must remember with these statistics is that among the many millions of people that the Nazis put to death were gay men and the people in mental institutions. Being different was a crime to the Nazi and they determined who were the "different." Peace.

    1. It was a terrible time!! in every way. I feel Irena deserved the Nobel Prize more so than many who attain to receive it. I do believe however, that like Mother Teresa, she was a humble modest lady who would likely have said, "I did nothing." These were always the famous words of my belated mother-in-law.."Figlia, Io fatto niente. (Child I did nothing.)

  16. I have studied so much of this, both as a student and, for years, as a Christian. Have had several heroes in my life connected to this. And, yes, the insanity reigns when people try to say it wasn't nearly as truthful and the history is fictionalized. So many don't understand. Those years were horrific in so many places around the world.

    What a blessing to have someone like her [and there were definitely many others] that risked their lives to save others.

    Thank you. [And I sure didn't agree with the Nobel issue. How crazy is that sometimes?]

    1. There is much injustice in the world and hero's such as Ireana should be applauded. I don't think I could have done this. What a risk she took, and all for the good of others.
