YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE BORN JEWISH


Irena Sendler wasn't born Jewish; in fact, she was never Jewish at all.

In spite of this, she showed great courage and humanity in saving nearly 2,500 Jewish children from the Nazis by organising a ring of 20 Poles to smuggle them out of the Warsaw Ghetto in baskets and ambulances.

Irena Sendler is a real human and I salute her and the brave Poles who worked with her to save the children. Their human kindness is greatly appreciated by this son of two of those who survived one of the darkest hours of history.

Read the remarkable story here.

You mean read it here because you won't read it in the Australian media while they're fussing about the IAJV and giving publicity to the Loewensteins and Adlers of this world?

A truly courageous woman.

May G-d bless her.
