    Irena Sendler, savior of 2,500 Jewish children died at 98

    Irena Sendler is probably someone most people have never heard of but she is a truly a heroine. She risked her life to save almost 2,500 children from the Warsaw Ghetto during the Nazi liquidation.
    I have read/researched a lot about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and it is truly remarkable that a group of Jewish Resistance fighters were able to engage the German Nazi army for over 40 days while living in the sewers of Warsaw.

    Mila 18 is a book by Leon Uris (author of Exodus, among other great books). Mila 18 was the headquarters during the uprising. This a great book about the uprising in Warsaw, although the characters are fictional the story is very real.

    May Irena rest in peace. Prayers and warm wishes for family and friends. Irena gave new meaning to the phrase, "role model." What a special, beautiful lady she was indeed!

    She was truly an unsung heroe. May she rest in peace. Maybe hollywood should be making a movie about her instead of the other drivel they feed to the masses.
