A Story that I did on Fingerprint Friday Worth Repeating.

Look at this woman's face and you will see a real Fingerprint from God.

This story is going around in an email and I had to use it for Fingerprint Friday.

There recently was a death of a 98 year old woman named Irena Sendler.

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 children).

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 wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the childrens noise.

During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 children. 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 children 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 and reunite them with their family. Most had been gassed. The children she helped got placed into foster family homes or were 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.

Now tell me, do you honestly have any respect for the Nobel Peace Prize? It is a joke. I will say this, Irena might have lost the Nobel Peace Prize, but what she gained in heaven will beat any prize on earth.

What a beautiful fingerprint from God and I am so happy to share this story with everyone, she is my hero.

Check out PamperingBeki's blog for more wonderful Fingerprints.

Till next time, keep looking up.

That is an inspirational glad there were women during that time that cared so much to save the children. She deserves much more than a prize given out to people who don't deserve anything! Smile today. :)

Wow..what a story and now I know a little of her background, I am sure I wont find her movie here - ever! "They" never show any movies which has anything to do with the Jews..and Israel is the only country stamped on my passport which I am not allowed to visit. Long political issue-something I am not interested in, but the courage of this person is amazing.Tks for the information you much :)
