“He who changes one person, changes the world entire”. Protestant students from rural Kansas, discovered a Polish Catholic woman who saved Jewish children. Few had heard of Irena Sendlerowa in 1999, now after 305 presentations of Life in a Jar, a web site, and world-wide media attention, Irena is known to the world. Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project by Jack Mayer is a powerful story of a Catholic woman who knocked on Jewish doors in the Warsaw ghetto and, in Sendler's own words, "tried to talk the mothers out of their children."
