Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project
Jack Mayer, author
The true story of a Polish Catholic social worker, Irena Sendler, who rescued 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto, but whose heroism was forgotten and whose history was repressed under communism. Sixty years later, three Kansas teenagers, each carrying her own burden, “rescue the rescuer” and elevate Irena Sendler to an international hero, championing dignity, acceptance, and respect for all people. These Kansas teens helped crack open Polish/Jewish dialogue about the Holocaust and they have changed the world.
