The picture is from Facebook, but I researched the story before posting it here; they story as told in the image is true. Al Gore won for more than just a slide-show, and the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize was shared between “the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and former U.S. Vice-President Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. ‘for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change,’” but it was still awarded to politicians pushing a theory rather than to a brave woman who had actually saved lives.

Tree of Irena Sendler, Yad Vashem

On October 19, 1965, Yad Vashem recognized Irena Sendler as Righteous Among the Nations. The tree planted in her honor stands at the entrance to the Avenue of the Righteous Among the Nations.

  1. After reading his lady’s story, I feel humble. Hers was an astonishing accomplishment, saving thousands of infants and young children at the all too immediate risk of life and limb. God Bless that good woman.

    And what a towering injustice the Nobel Committee inflicted on her in the last days of her life. And, for what? To flatter a crooked US politician and the International cabal of money grubbing UN bureaucrats caught concocting phony climate change data so they can shake-down Western nations for billions of dollars. Shame!

  2. What astonishes me is that I had never heard of Mrs Sendler before I saw that photo on Facebook. It is a story of towering courage and grim determination, showing what an ordinary soul can accomplish, but it’s not a story that is taught very often, and I’m not exactly unedumacated in history.

    There were hundreds, even thousands of Irena Sendlers doing what they could during World War II, unsung, incredibly brave, and we hear so little of them.

  3. This is a remarkable story about a courageous woman. Irena Sendler is truly a heroine of the modern era and her story needs to be repeated as often as possible.

    Not many people know that Irena Sendler’s legacy is connected to four 9th graders in Kansas who captured her courage and compassion in a staged presentation called “Life in a Jar.” Their project quickly spilled over into their community and ultimately attracted global attention.

    Details about Irena Sendler, A Heroine of the Holocaust, can be found at http://quilligrapher.hubpages.com/hub/Sendler. It reveals the lives of a brave social worker in Poland and four students in Kansas who brought her amazing story to life.

    The First Street Journal and its editor should be commended for spreading the inspirational memory of this marvelous woman.

  4. Given the kind of shitbirds who have earned been given the Nobel Peace Prize, NOT getting one was probably the greater honor for this woman. Who, after all, would want to be in the “company” of Yassir Arafat, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and the North Vietnamese commie swine who won in 1973?

  5. Let’s try that again:
