Steve Buscemi Portrait. You can buy a print here.
Interesting fact about Buscemi, he was a firefighter before he was an actor. Quietly returned to engine Co. 55 during 9/11 to work 12 hour shifts, sifting through debris for a week and didn’t want any publicity about it.
Thanks for viewing.

IRENA-SENDLER

Remember this lady? I didn’t either.

During WWII, Irena Sendler got permission to work in the Warsaw
ghetto, as a plumbing/sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive.

Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she
carried. She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for
larger kids.

Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi
soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.
The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the
barking covered the kids/infants noises.
During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save
2500 kids/infants.

Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazis broke both her legs
and arms and beat her severely.

Irena Kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out,
in a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard. After
the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and
tried to reunite the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she
helped got placed into foster family homes or 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.

Irena Sendler
Thank you for giving so much and saving so many.
