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 of her truck that she had 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 which 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.
 
In  MEMORIAM – 65 YEARS LATER: I’m doing my small part by forwarding this message.   I hope you’ll consider doing the same.   On May 8, it will be 70 years since the Second World War in Europe ended.  This email is being sent as a memorial chain in memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, and 10 million Christians were  murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated.

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