    The world hasn't just become wicked...it' s always been wicked. The 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.

    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.

    It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.

    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.

    This woman is only one example of what many did in those days. Those of us who lived through the horrors of the 2nd World War will never forget. My wife's mother's family were Jewish and they changed their family name from Neuman to the English Newman in case the Germans did make it to England. That is how bad it was.

    Our Legion's motto is "Never Again" and I sure pray that is true.

    Cheers,

    Jim
