  1. What a lady. I didn’t know about her .Her name wasn’t Che or Mao two heroes of the left .If she had slaughtered innocents ,she would be on posters and the White House Christmas tree ball.It is obscene that she did not win the Nobel prize especially when the winner was that world class buffoon Al Gore . He is about as worthy as Obama another undeserving winner .Irena Sendler was an angel and a saint .RIP

  2. When I was in Jerusalem in 2004, I saw the tree that was planted in her honor at Yad Vashem, as well as the grave on nearby Mount Zion of Oskar Schindler (the “Righteous Among the Nations” with the most name recognition). There is a popular, and applicable, saying from the Talmud: “Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world.” — Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:5 (Babylonian Talmud Tractate Sanhedrin 37a). Think of all the worlds that were saved, and the generations that were borne from such death-defying heroism. It’s all very humbling, particularly as there is no real way to thank them except to simply perpetuate their memories, i.e., “Never Forget.”

  3. The horror WW2 was for the Jewish people fades as time passes ….perhaps this is understandable for those not of the Jewish Faith or had ancestors who suffered as did they, but how can those of the Jewish faith & belief support the Democratic Party of today which has aligned itself with those who hate Israel so much & in effect deny the reality of the holocaust.
    To support a political party which has chosen Barack Obama as its leader, chose Jimmy Carter before & almost carried the day for Al Gore demonstrates an ignorance or stupidity beyond belief.
    This election is a chance for all to redeem themselves….I sure hope they are paying close attention! If Obama wins …war will be coming to Israel & very possibly without American support.

  4. I can only second what Erica said so beautifully… and I saw that very tree at Yad Vashem this summer.
