Poland honors woman who saved Jews in Holocaust

Poland's parliament on Wednesday honored Irena Sendler, a 97-year-old credited with saving 2,500 Jews during the Holocaust, at a ceremony during which the country's president said she deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. At a special session, members of the Senate - the upper house of parliament - unanimously approved a resolution honoring Sendler and the Polish underground Council for Assisting Jews. The group's members, mostly Roman Catholics, risked their own lives to save Jews from the Holocaust in Nazi-occupied Poland.
