And the looser is: Irena Sendler

Look at this lady, and let us never forget what she stood for. The prize doesn’t always go to the most deserving because like everything else- the majority doesn’t get to vote – instead a privileged few do and they are obviously biased.

Irena  Sendler recently passed away at 98 years old. During WWII, she got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a Nurse. She had an ‘ulterior motive’ being German, she KNEW what the Nazi’s plans were for the Jews.

Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried in the back of her truck.

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. 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.

One year 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.

  1. I have heard her story, and take strength from the image of invincibility and cunning that made her mission fly. To quietly prevail in the face of brute oppression is life energy of the highest order. She lives on, immortalized by the proof that the star power once claimed by the Nobel Prize has moved on to those whose efforts truly enhance Peace. By virtue of it’s recent winners, the honor has become more of a joke. The prize, is, in fact, UNWORTHY of Irena. and her memory is dignified by not sharing fidelity with such a “fool’s gold” gimmick for attention.

  2. I agree- the Nobel Prize is not so noble. In fact we should start something to find out just how many people lost to less worthy and expose all of them!

  3. In the interests of accuracy, I’d just like to comment that the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize was shared.

    • Thanks for the information – Shared by whom? Perhaps I should make that clear. The point of my story will not be lost by whoever else shared in it.
