The Irena Sendler Project: Life in a Jar

Published by : K-State College of Education
In 1999, in Uniontown Kansas, high school teacher Norm Conard and a handful of students stumbled across an unknown hero from the holocaust, Irena Sendler. A research project intended for the classroom soon sparked the interest of the world, and forever changed the lives of everyone involved. This is the Kansas side of the story.

K-state College of Education graduate Sabrina Murphy shares in her experiences with Mr. Conard and project member Megan Felt. For more information about the Irena Sendler Project please visit
