Liebie's Random Ramblings

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined. — Patrick Henry

Irena Sendler

Here is a name that most people probably won’t know.  This courageous woman is responsible for saving the lives of 2500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland during the German occupation.  She, along with a brave group of people smuggled these children out and placed them where ever she could.  She also kept records of where the children were placed so that when the war was over the families could be reunited.  They did get caught and were interrogated, punished and some were killed by the Germans.  She had both legs broken and was beated.  A German soldier was bribed to save her. 

In 2007 she was nominated for Nobel Peace Prize, but it was not awarded to her.  It went to Al Gore for his climate change crap.  Who is more deserving of this?

There is a movie made about her.  I was up way too late last night watching it.  It’s in 7 parts.   Here is the first one.
