Polish potluck and ‘Life in A Jar’ film screening

Irena Sendler rescued 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland during the Nazi occupation in WWII. Her name and deeds were mostly unsung in America until a group of Kansas teens found out about her story and made a play about it. Jack Mayer, a local doctor and writer, wrote a book (Also called ‘Life in a Jar’) about Irena and also about the teens who wrote about her. We discussed the book last year. This year, in honor of Yom HaShoah--the Jewish day of remembrance of the Holocaust, we will gather to eat a meal of Polish food together and then watch a screening of the DVD that shows the play the teens created.
