Track Name: Life In A Jar
Life in a Jar is a project that began in the fall of 1999. Four rural Kansas high school students discovered the story of a Polish Catholic woman, Irena Sendler, who saved 2500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto during the Holocaust. Sendler’s story was largely unknown to the world until the students developed The Irena Sendler Project, producing their performance, Life in a Jar. This student-produced drama has now been performed over 285 times all across the United States, in Canada and in Poland. Sendler's message of love and respect has grown through the performances, over 1500 media stories and a student-developed website with 30,000,000 hits. The book, Life in A Jar by Jack Mayer inspired this music.
