An amazing story of a true hero. She was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, but Al Gore was selected??
Irena Sendler. Wow. Amazing woman. Al Gore got the Nobel Peace Prize instead of her? Wow. Shows the sad times we live in. Ridiculous.
Remember this lady? I didn't either - Originally posted on Diasp.org An amazing woman who saved over 2500 infants and children during WWII in the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland. She eventually was captured and tortured and miraculously got out when she was scheduled for execution! She missed getting the Nobel Peace Prize 'by that much' in 2007. The year that Al Gore received it. She died in 2008.
Irena Sendler - A true hero Al Gore won Nobel peace prize over her???? Makes me sick!

During World War II the island of Okunoshima housed a major poison gas manufacturing plants. After the war, the plant was destroyed and abandoned. The rabbits held there for testing were released into the wild around the plant. As you can tell from these photos, they have thrived.

The 1939 stamp depicting the Trylon and Perisphere, the centerpiece and symbol of the 1939 New York World's Fair. Although the Trylon and Perisphere itself is an iconic Art Deco image, the lettering and numbers on the stamp were done in a traditional, not Art Deco, font. With this limited exception, United States stamps showed no Art Deco influence until 1998 when it issued a stamp in a strong Art Deco depicting Ayn Rand.
