"Hearing one person tell their story gave a completely different perspective to what happened, as it wasn't about statistics or about a nation as a whole, but one person who lost his family and home." ~O. Avery (student)

Upcoming Community Events

The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center is proud to be a Community Partner with Congregation B'nai Abraham to bring Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project to the Philadelphia Community.

The Irena Sendler Project is the compelling story of three high school students from Kansas, who uncovered the remarkable saga of Irena Sendler. Irena Sendler was a Polish Catholic social worker who rescued over 2500 Jewish children from death during the Holocaust in the Warsaw Ghetto. She buried the lists of the children’s names in jars in the hopes of reuniting the children with their parents after WWII.
