In memory of Irena Sendler
She passed away on May 12th, 2008 – But she won’t be forgotten
This story was forwarded to me by a friend, and I think what this lady did is well worth remembering, and even passing along to others to read. I believe also that this story stands as a warning for all of us, because I believe history is about to repeat itself, if we are not careful!
I dare say that most of you, reading this, probably have never even heard of this lady. She is one of those largely uncelebrated and unheard of heroes; however, her story is absolutely amazing!
I would also like to say that this should serve as a very ominous reminder for us, and even a warning, in these days and times that we are living in today.
Jesus warned us that there was coming a time that would be the worst time in the history of the world, and that includes Nazi Germany!
For anyone with eyes to see, our present government today is going in exactly the same direction as did pre-Nazi Germany; and if we fail to learn from the lessons of history, then we will most assuredly be destined to repeat it.
Please read on and learn about this amazing woman… who is truly an amazing hero!

There is no comment that I can think of that is APPROPRIATE…
Except to say what an amazing woman!
Meet Irena Sendler…
The world hasn’t just become wicked, it’ s always been wicked.
The prize doesn’t always go to the most deserving…
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 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.
Note: Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected.
Al Gore won — for a slide show on Global Warming.
