Libby Skala Performance Irene Sendler 'Rescuing the Rescuer'

Friday, September 14, 2018

Libby Skala Performance Irene Sendler 'Rescuing the Rescuer' Polish Catholic social worker Irena Sendler defies Nazi rule to save 2,500 Jewish children during WWII. Her true story remains lost until three Protestant high school students from rural Kansas find a brief mention of her in an old clipping. Their curiosity evolves into an award-winning National History Day project, bringing Sendler to international attention. It leads them across the ocean where they befriend Irena and learn how one person can change the world by 'answering the need of her heart.' For more information, please call 203 899 2780 x 15109
