The nazis had done a very detailed study of Antarctic and were alleged to have built an underground base there. In this regard however, the aryans have had an underground habitation in Antarctic for more than a million years.
As a health worker, she sneaked the children out between and to safe hiding places and found non-Jewish families to adopt them.
Her achievement went largely unnoticed for many years. Then the story was uncovered by four young students at Uniontown High School, in Kansaswho were the winners of the Kansas state National History Day competition by writing a play Life in a Jar about the heroic actions of Irena Sendler.
Sendler was born in in Otwock, a town some 15 miles southeast of Warsaw. She was greatly influenced by her father who was one of the first Polish Socialists. As a doctor his patients were mostly poor Jews.
InGermany invaded Poland, and the brutality of the Nazis accelerated with murder, violence and terror.
At the time, Irena was a Senior Administrator in the Warsaw Social Welfare Department, which operated the canteens in every district of the city. Previously, the canteens provided meals, financial aid, and other services for orphans, the elderly, the poor and the destitute.
Now, through Irena, the canteens also provided clothing, medicine and money for the Jews. They were registered under fictitious Christian names, and to prevent inspections, the Jewish families were reported as being afflicted with such highly infectious diseases as typhus and tuberculosis.
But inthe Nazis herded hundreds of thousands of Jews into a block area that came to be known as the Warsaw Ghetto. The Ghetto was sealed and the Jewish families ended up behind its walls, only to await certain death.
Sendler was so appalled by the conditions that she joined Zegotathe Council for Aid to Jews, organized by the Polish underground resistance movement, as one of its first recruits and directed the efforts to rescue Jewish children.
To be able to enter the Ghetto legally, Irena managed to be issued a pass from Warsaws Epidemic Control Department and she visited the Ghetto daily, reestablished contacts and brought food, medicines and clothing. But 5, people were dying a month from starvation and disease in the Ghetto, and she decided to help the Jewish children to get out.
For Sendler, a young mother herself, persuading parents to part with their children was in itself a horrendous task. Finding families willing to shelter the children, and thereby willing to risk their life if the Nazis ever found out, was also not easy.
Sendler, who wore a star armband as a sign of her solidarity to Jews, began smuggling children out in an ambulance. She recruited at least one person from each of the ten centers of the Social Welfare Department. With their help, she issued hundreds of false documents with forged signatures and successfully smuggled almost 2, Jewish children to safety and gave them temporary new identities.
Some children were taken out in gunnysacks or body bags. Some were buried inside loads of goods.
A mechanic took a baby out in his toolbox. Some kids were carried out in potato sacks, others were placed in coffins, some entered a church in the Ghetto which had two entrances.
One entrance opened into the Ghetto, the other opened into the Aryan side of Warsaw. They entered the church as Jews and exited as Christians. But she could only guarantee they would die if they stayed.
The children were given false identities and placed in homes, orphanages and convents. Sendler carefully noted, in coded form, the children's original names and their new identities.
She kept the only record of their true identities in jars buried beneath an apple tree in a neighbor's back yard, across the street from German barracks, hoping she could someday dig up the jars, locate the children and inform them of their past.
In all, the jars contained the names of 2, children. But the Nazis became aware of Irena's activities, and on October 20, she was arrested, imprisoned and tortured by the Gestapowho broke her feet and legs.
She ended up in the Pawiak Prison, but no one could break her spirit. Though she was the only one who knew the names and addresses of the families sheltering the Jewish children, she withstood the torture, refusing to betray either her associates or any of the Jewish children in hiding.
Sentenced to death, Irena was saved at the last minute when Zegota members bribed one of the Germans to halt the execution. She escaped from prison but for the rest of the war she was pursued by the Gestapo. After the war she dug up the jars and used the notes to track down the 2, children she placed with adoptive families and to reunite them with relatives scattered across Europe.
But most lost their families during the Holocaust in Nazi death camps. The children had known her only by her code name Jolanta. But years later, after she was honored for her wartime work, her picture appeared in a newspaper.
She claimed no credit for her actions. This lovely, courageous woman was one of the most dedicated and active workers in aiding Jews during the Nazi occupation of Poland.At least, that has been the conventional wisdom.
Now comes WND senior staff reporter Jerome R. Corsi’s new book, “Hunting Hitler: New Scientific Evidence That Hitler Escaped Germany. Witnesses to the Holocaust share what they saw, from liberators of concentration camps to rescuers and resistance, and Nazi perpetrators research is shared.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • "An irresistible history of the WWII Jewish refugees who returned to Europe to fight the Nazis.”—Newsday They were young Jewish boys who escaped from Nazi-occupied Europe and resettled in America.
After the United States entered the war, they returned to fight for their adopted homeland and for the families they had left behind. “I think the rumour developed because U was a very modern, long-distance U-boat and some Nazis tried to escape with valuables in the last days.
After white supremacist groups sparked deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, hundreds of people gathered in cities around the country on Sunday to rally against organized hate.
In New York. Every time some idiot states that the Nazis weren't Socialists adds further proof to what many psychologists believe, Socialism is a mental ilness.
