May 12, 2008 – Irena Sendler passed away, but her legacy continues worldwide.

Thirteen years have passed, yet her courage and valor still set an example for people everywhere. This story of the power of one person to change the world is more important than ever before. We pause to remember Irena Sendler today.

History passes, and we remember the Holocaust with sadness, but there is joy as we honor heroism, bravery, kindness, and compassion.

May 12th is also the birthday of Megan Felt, of the Life in a Jar, Irena Sendler Project. Her relationship with Irena was powerful, tender, and compassionate. Megan has spent the majority of her life telling the story of Irena. She is anxious for the pandemic to end, for many reasons, to continue Life in a Jar performances. The play has been presented over 375 times in the last 22 years.

Come and see our wonderful Irena Sendler exhibit at the Center. Let us know ahead of time so that we can give you the VIP treatment.
