Description
 
This children's book summarizes the compelling heroine story of Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic who organized the rescue of more than 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto during World War II. Irena Sendler said, "There are two kinds of people: good and bad. Nationality, race, and religion do not play any role; what is important is which human you are." This Nobel Peace Prize nominee was largely unknown in America—until a group of teenagers in Kansas discovered her inspiring and heartbreaking life story. In the fall of 1999, four young girls from Kansas began research for a high school history project. The students were inspired by a magazine article about Irena Sendler, and after discovering that Sendler was still alive, they exchanged letters with her and eventually traveled to Poland to meet with her. The play the students wrote as a result of their research and multiple interviews spawned worldwide interest in the epic story of one person who managed to save the lives of 2,500 children in Poland under German occupation.

The story Irena Sendler sparked the writing of the student-authored play, Life in a Jar, which continues to be staged in schools, churches, and synagogues across North America and Europe • Particularly appropriate for young students as a poignant example of the wide-reaching good can result from the efforts of a very small number of individuals • Presents an inspirational, true story of an ordinary human being who put her belief in equality for all into action and simply took whatever action was necessary to help those in need.
