Be sure to read to the end….




Subject: the Lady Plumber

Irena Sendler
Died: May 12, 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.

Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of  the tool box she carried.
 She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her    truck, for larger kids.

Irena kept 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.

Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi’s broke both of her       legs and arms and beat her severely..

Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out, In       a glass jar that she buried under a tree in
her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may       have survived and tried to reunite the family.
Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family       homes or adopted.


In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize.
She was not selected. 
Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming. 

Later another politician,
Barack Obama, won for his work as a community organizer for ACORN.

I’m doing my small part by forwarding this message.
 I hope       you’ll consider doing the same.

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.

    Very familiar with this story.Her bravery no doubt saved countless lives during the Holocaust and it’s a tragedy that this was never officially recognised-especially when you read that she was overlooked in favour of Al Gore’s Global Warming slide show . Anyone who has ever visited Auschwitz or any other memorial to those who perished will no doubt realise this-believe me,it’s a chilling experience to stand amongst the remains of the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau, which I’ve visited three times now.
    There are many alive today who owe their heritage to this woman, and yes-I will most certainly be sharing the email to anyone I know.
