Thank you for sharing this story. I had never heard of Irena. It reminds me that there are countless unsung heroes among us, or who have died for us.

I agree. Lately I have found many great people. I bring them back for us to know. All of us can accomplish great deeds.
Hi John. An amazing Lady there are so many who have done so much we never know about. So glad you shares Irena Sendler’s life. May I thank you very much for liking my poem Scared! Peace and Best Wishes. The Foureyed Poet.
She was a amazing lady and you are welcome.
Thanks for sharing her life. This is a person who truely walked in her purpose and destiny.
She was. We need more Irena Sendler and you are welcome.
I can’t believe that I have never heard about Irena before. What she did was truly remarkable, she had a great heart and was really brave to do this. It’s a shame that she didn’t get a nobel prices before she passed away.
She had a movie also. A brave and wonderful woman.
Great share thank you so much! Her life puts incredible perspective on the daily to do list the rest of us complain about on a daily basis. 😉 G-uno
I agree. A fearless and wonderful woman.
Thank you for telling us about her! I did not know and I’m so glad to be able to share her story with my family.
We need to know of great people who risked their life for strangers and were fearless. Irena Sendler was.
Irena Sendler is a truly a remarkable woman. Her life defines a heroine of the modern era and her inspirational story deserves to be repeated as often as possible.
Not everyone knows that Irena Sendler’s legacy is connected to four ninth graders in Kansas, USA, who captured her courage and her compassion in a staged presentation called “Life in a Jar.” Their project quickly spilled over into their community and ultimately attracted global attention.
Many details about Irena Sendler, A Heroine of the Holocaust, can be found at http://quilligrapher.hubpages.com/hub/Sendler. It connects the lives of this brave social worker in Poland and four dedicated students in Kansas who brought her amazing story to life.
John Coyote, you should be commended for spreading the inspirational memory of this marvelous woman.
It is my honor to be able to teach people. There are Angels willing to give all for strangers. Not wanting reward. She is a amazing woman.
Thank you for the site. I added to my favorite.
She seems like a lady who knew where to find the joy
She was a amazing lady. Saved 2500 children and wanted to be keep her life private. A true Angel.
I understand her desire to keep it private.
I do remember her. She is the kind of heroine whose life work was its own prize. She might have been too humble to accept the award, being recognized was not her goal…the mark of a true angel walking among us. Thanks for sharing her story.

The Nobel Prize was given to someone who made a slideshow and not to someone who deserved to have a movie made about her.
I agree. Irena Sendler saved 2500 kids. She was a wonderful person. We need to ensure she is never forgotten.
Oh my goodness, this gave me chills. Thank you for sharing her story.
She was a wonderful woman. People like her need to be remembered. Her selfless act saved 2500 kids.

Al Gore should be ashamed of himself for accepting, and those who gave it to him should be ashamed. God bless this woman and others like her that we may never know about.
I agree. Irena Sendler showed us. How one person can make a different.
Wish I were that brave.

Amazing story. May she inspire us.
She had inspired me. A wonderful and brave woman. Thank you for reblogging her story.
thanks for sharing her story!
I know of her and I remember… always!
I stopped believing in the Nobel prizes long ago. A real hero – who lived courage when it would have been safer to do nothing.
I agree. Lately honored awards have been downsized by giving to the wrong people.
they are now politically correct – as opposed to correct in any other manner.
No I had never heard of her, thank you for sharing this and educating.
She need to be remembered. She is one of many who took great chances and saved many and you are welcome.
WOW! this is truly remarkable
She was. I heard of her before. Woman, like her need to be remembered.
Inspiring, a quiet heroine.
The true kind. Were many. These are the people we need to remember.
