A True Hero

A Polish woman, Irena Sendler, who rescued 2,500 Jews in the Holocaust was honored by the Polish parliament today. When arrested by the Nazis in 1943, she refused to give up the names of the Jews she saved, who were mostly children, even after being severely tortured. She is a true hero and I’m glad her sacrifice is being honored. The story can be found here.

More information about her story can be found here; and of course, the wikipedia entry.

Exercise: Another beautiful day and I enjoyed it on a 48 minute Oak Creek run. I felt much better than yesterday and it was just a fun time out there!
