This is Irena Sendler, who died aged 98. She was a plumber in the Warsaw ghetto. She saved 2,500 infants and children by smuggling them out in her toolbox and van. She kept a list of their names in a glass jar under a tree in her garden and after the war tried to reunite them with relatives. She was nominated for the Nobel Peace prize the year it was awarded to Al Gore - not a bad bloke of course but not someone who actually put his life on the line for peace like Irena. She was German - I think Irena means peace (I checked that with Bob because his mum had the same name).
