During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a Nurse.
She had an 'ulterior motive' .. She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, (being German.)
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 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..
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.
She died, whilst being nursed by one of the children she saved from the gas chamber.

Claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it's imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are others who would like you to forget so they can do it again.
