Being German, she KNEW what the Nazi’s 
plans were for the Jews.

Irena smuggled infants 
out in the bottom of the tool box she carried 
and she carried in the back of her truck a 
burlap sack, (for larger kids).

Nazi’s broke both her legs, arms and beat her 


Irena kept a record of 
the names of all the kids she smuggled out and 
kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in 
her back yard.
