Irena Sendler got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto as a plumber. She courageously smuggled babies in her tool box and carried larger children in her sack. She also trained her dog to bark when the Nazi soldiers were near, which muffled the sounds of the crying children. She helped save more than 2,500 children & was eventually caught & tortured. Sendler was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize along with Al Gore, who won for his presentation on global warming...but she is a HERO! ~ by wilma

Wilhelm Hosenfeld (2 May 1895 – 13 August 1952), was a German Army officer who rose to the rank of Hauptmann by the end of the war. He helped to hide or rescue several Poles, including Jews, in Nazi-occupied Poland, and is perhaps most remembered for helping Polish-Jewish pianist and composer Władysław Szpilman to survive, hidden, in the ruins of Warsaw during the last months of 1944. He died in Soviet captivity on 13 August 1952, from injury possibly sustained during torture. by twila

"Irma Grese, “the Beast of Belsen” (1923-1945) - a former nursing assistant and teenage Nazi SS auxiliary female guard in Auschwitz and Belsen concentration camps. Under the Nazi system, Irma was trained to function as a state serial killer, but in the end began to kill for her own hedonistic needs. She had a dark compulsion to torture and kill inmates in her charge and became so excessively homicidal that even male SS guards began to complain. by eva.ritz

Photos of Jews who were killed during WW II on one of the few remaining buildings in present-day Muranow, Warsaw, Poland, which is built on rubble and the remains of Jews who perished there during WWII. When Polish journalist Beata Chomatowska walks the streets, she can’t stop thinking about what happened there. “It’s a daily trauma." During the war, Nazis packed 400,000 Jews into the 1.3 sq mi area of the Warsaw Ghetto. Most were murdered at Treblinka, but 1000s are buried in the ruins. by twila
