The Lowell Milken Center For Unsung Heroes will be celebrating 20 years of
“Life in a Jar:
the Irena Sendler Project”
and hosting the Chamber Coffee on Thursday, Sept. 19th following the Chamber Coffee at 8am. (1 S. Main St.)
Irena Sendler was a Polish Catholic social worker who risked her own life to rescue a significant number of Jewish children during WWII. Her story was unknown for 60 years until high school students from Uniontown, Kansas uncovered its details in September of 1999, and shared Irena’s story with the world. The students wrote a performance that has now been presented more than
375 times across the United States, Canada and Poland. Their goal to bring Irena Sendler’s story to the world continues.
