EDUCATION: Irena Sendler – Life in a Jar

    “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."
   Peformances at St. Louis, MO: Cervantes Convention Center – November 22-24.
   A DVD and insert study guide is available. The DVD also features Irena and the cast, a photo album, and a Today Show segment. The DVD can be obtained freely or for a donation.  Contact and information:;
