A Story of Courage... "She Believed She Could, So She Did"

THE STORY OF IRENA SENDLER WHO SAVED 2,500 CHILDREN FROM THE NAZIS

There are countless stories of courage buried in the ruins of the Holocaust, but Irena Sendler's story stands out for us. When the Nazis invaded Irena's native Poland and rounded up all the Jews into a walled-in ghetto, she knew what was going to happen.

Irena was a social worker, she figured she could sneak food and medicine into the ghetto if she got credentials and disguised as a nurse. What she snuck out was even more than food and medicine.

It’s estimated that Irena and her group helped get approximately 2,500 children out of the ghetto. They sedated the children and placed in the bottom of toolboxes, and at the bottom of her truck, and sent them to Christian orphanages. The children were given new identities but Irena kept their real names in a jar buried in her backyard.

Irena was eventually caught by the Nazis. She was imprisoned and tortured, breaking both of her legs. When the war ended, she devoted herself to reuniting the children she helped snuck out with their families. ~ A part story from 11 Incredible Acts of Courage.

If not for Irena's courageous act, who knows what could have happened to those innocent lives.

True enough, only if one believes in something can one act purposefully...
