Irena Sendler – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cute wee wifie, right?

Actually, this is one major hardass grandma:

Irena Sendler was a Polish Catholic social worker. During World War II she was an activist in the Polish Underground and the Żegota Polish anti-Holocaust resistance in Warsaw. She helped save 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto by providing them with false documents and sheltering them in individual and group children’s homes outside the Ghetto.

This was not one of Burke’s “good men doing nothing”. This was a woman who put her own life on the line to save the lives of thousands of innocents. Righteous among the nations, indeed.
