    Sorry if you have seen this already... This is the first time I have heard this...

    In 2007 this lady loses the Nobel Peace Prize to Al Gore... All she did was....

    Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids..) She also had 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. She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted....

    Compared to Al Gore travelling around on private planes and talking about a theory that man is changing the climate on earth... LOL

    So lets get this straight...

    This fine woman was eligible to receive a Nobel Prize for over 50 years before Al Gore won in 2007.

    So it is AL Gore who denied her the Nobel Prize?? :cuckoo:

    Remarkable story that I was unaware of - thank you for posting.

    As for Al Gore - he is quickly being relegated to the scrap heap of history...

    A definite negative reflection on the Nobel selection committee.

    Maybe we should be blaiming Martin Luther King and Jimmy Carter for their Nobel Prizes too

    Their wins kept poor Irina from claiming her Nobel also

    Of course rightwinger failed to read the story..... Especially the part that said reports say she was nominated in 2007 only to lose to Al Gore and his great slideshow...

    And the Nobel Prize panel had 50 years to nominate her

    so it is now Gores fault that they waited 50 years.

    Seems like a first class lady who saved many lives. But it is not Al Gores fault that the Nobel Prize Committee never nominated her over 50 years

    :eusa_eh::eusa_eh: I see no where were it says it was Al Whore's fault. The OP was rightly incredulous (as I and any rational person would be) that Whore won it over Irena Sendler. Get a grip.
