A Sobering Thought.

ATT00001The prize doesn't always go to the most deserving

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 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.

Two years ago Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize ... She was not selected.

Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.

Powerful message, especially the "cartoon."  Let us never forget!

Please read the little cartoon carefully, it's powerful. Then read the comments

In Memoriam

It is now more  than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe  ended This e-mail is  being sent as 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 with the German and Russian Peoples looking the other  way!

Now, more than ever, with Iraq , 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.


  1. I agree with you, she should have received the Nobel Peace Prize. What an inspirational thing she did. Good for her.

    I couldn't post a comment on your blog so I changed it to pop-up comments. I'll go change it back to what you had it. I changed mine to pop-up because so many folks couldn't leave a message with the embedded below post option.

    Have a terrific day Mike. Big hug. :)

  2. Another example of the injustice in the world, caused by people who just don't get it.

  3. Sandee,That was an extra ordenary thing that she did and paid the price when she was caught.Thankfully she saved childern that otherwise would have been slaughtered.

    Matty,by dening her the Nobel is seems that what she did was unimportand because she is not a well know indivdual.Some get the prise just because of their "status" in the world.
