Book #2 Description
LIFE IN A JAR: THE IRENA SENDLER PROJECT (Long Trail Press, 2011) is the non-fiction account of how Irena Sendler rescued 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto. After the war her story remained unknown. Sixty years later, three Kansas teens researching a National History Day project found a reference to her heroism, which became a play they call Life in a Jar. Their play elevated Irena Sendler to hero and helped crack open Polish dialogue about the Holocaust. The “girls from Kansas” are living examples of the power of one person to change the world and models for young people everywhere. They continue to champion Irena Sendler’s legacy – courage, tolerance, respect for all.
