When the Nazi's discovered what she had done they broke both of her legs and tortured her. She was set for her execution when she escaped (on broken legs mind you) and got to safety where she hid until the war was over. She went back to her house (that had been destroyed) and dug up that jar with all the children's information. They all received their family information and those who had parents who survived, were reunited with them.
One woman who led the rescue of 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto during the Holocaust in World War II with no thought of her own life and safety. She was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.
Instead of this wonderful deserving woman receiving the Nobel Prize - Al Gore won it. I am so ashamed of those who applaud this!
