April 30th – Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project. Dr. Jack Mayer tells the story of Irena Sendler, a holocaust hero who rescued 2,500 children from the Warsaw ghetto. Sendler’s story remained unknown after the war until three Kansas teens uncovered a reference to her heroism 60 years later. They helped transform her story into a National History Day play called Life in a Jar, finally bringing recognition to Sendler’s heroism and helping to open dialogue about the Holocaust in Poland. The “girls from Kansas” continue to champion Sendler’s legacy-courage, tolerance, and respect for all-and are living examples of the power individuals have to change the world.
