Hadassah presents “Irena Sendler, Angel of the Warsaw Ghetto” on Sunday March 9th at 2:00 pm. This one-act play, with Judy Winnick as Irena, will be performed at Nativity of Our Lord Catholic Church, 900 W. Midway, Broomfield, Colorado.
As a Polish Catholic social worker during WWII, Irena Sendler risked her life to save others. With ingenuity, calmness and courage, she was responsible for rescuing 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto. During her lifetime, she received many awards for her humanitarian work and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, a year before her death at age 98. Irena was recognized by the state of Israel as one of the “Righteous Among Nations” at Yad Vashem.
This event is co-sponsored by Hadassah and Nativity of Our Lord Catholic Church. No charge to attend. Please join us for refreshments prior to the performance. Contact : firstname.lastname@example.org.
