The death of a Polish woman who almost certainly saved the lives of 2,500 Jewish children during World War II has been announced.

Irena Sendlerowa organised the rescue of the children from the Warsaw Ghetto during the Nazi occupation.

She died in a Warsaw hospital at the age of 98, her daughter said.
[...]
The BBC's Adam Easton in Warsaw says Irena Sendlerowa hated the term "hero", and said her conscience was troubled because she had done so little.
Go here for the rest of the story.

I'm not sure what to say other than that I am very humbled by this true display of bravery by her all the others involved in the resuce operation.

A good trip to her. She saved the lives of so many.
If you encounter any Trolls. You really must not forget them.
And if you want to save these shores. For Pity sake Don't Trust them.

When the fall is all that remains. It matters a great deal.

All hail the clich's all emcompassing shadow.

Nice to see one of the good ones rewarded with a long life and I hope a peaceful passing.
