The true story of Irena Sendler, a Holocaust hero who rescued 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto, but whose heroism was forgotten. Sixty years later, three Kansas teenagers find a brief reference to Irena’s rescues and write a school play, which quickly snowballs and helps crack open the silence in Poland about the Holocaust. These three girls elevate Irena Sendler to an international hero, championing decency, tolerance and respect for all people. This lecture was delivered at the 13th annual National Jewish Retreat.
