An email has circulated the Internet for a few years now. It popped up on FaceBook the other day, a friend posted it so I did an analysis on it. The email concerns a woman who lived in NAZI Germany during WWII. My analysis is at the bottom, here is the post:
REMEMBER THIS LADY!!!
Look at this lady – Let us never forget!
The world hasn’t just become wicked…it’s always been wicked.
The prize doesn’t always go to the most deserving.
Died 12 May 2008 (aged 98)
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
Al Gore won also — for a slide show on Global Warming.
In MEMORIAM – 63 YEARS LATER
I’m doing my small part by forwarding this message.
I hope you’ll consider doing the same…
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.
This is being posted as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated by the Nazis.
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, and this time, it may be your religious, ethnic, sexual preference or ‘whatever’ group.
Interesting, this seems to be an amalgamation of two pieces written by separate authors. The top part, about Irena Sendler is true, at least insofar as they can speculate about Nobel Peace Prize candidates (the process is secret for 50 years apparently, so the actual nominees are not known). That was in 2007, apparently, the year before her death which is when Al Gore won his award, and coincidentally, an Academy Award for the film “An Inconvenient Truth.” I’m not supporting Gore here in any way, and I won’t go into my views on Global Warming except to say I’m not convinced.
The bottom part is a separate letter, author unknown, from the part where it says “In MEMORIAM – 63 YEARS LATER.” That part is controversial in that it specifically claims 10M Christians killed. It is known that the NAZI’s executed large numbers of “Undesireables” and those who would not swear allegiance to Hitler (including Jehovah’s Witnesses who are NOT Christians). There were Gypsies, and Poles, Russians and other Eastern Europeans, killed by the thousands. Whole villages were wiped out, but the real totals can only be guessed. Since it’s a “Memorial” those number probably do not include the combat casualties. I cannot say for certain that 20M Russians were killed by Hitler, but even still, Stalin killed far more of his own people than did Hitler (Stalin is estimated to have killed up to 30M of his own citizens).
I agree wholeheartedly that Ms. Sendler deserves our honor and respect as being an activist in the truest sense of the word. If only more of us could be like her. We must get creative and try to think up new ways to shut down Planned Parenthood and abortionists. We are facing our own modern “Holocaust” with nearly 55M killed – in their mother’s wombs – as of today. I think that beats the heck out of Hitler’s totals. And that’s right here, in America, in a supposedly “Free” society that values liberty and the rule of law.
We simply made it “Legal” to kill those not yet born, we somehow wrote a law that took away their rights, and their citizenship, even though the only difference between an unborn baby and a “Person” is about 8″ of birth canal. How truly sad that is. We are all guilty of their murders too since if we say nothing then we are giving our acceptance, as much as did those under Hitler who said nothing about the Death Camps and the killing of Jews and others.
