Jack Mayer Presents: "Life in a Jar"

Jack Mayer Presents: "Life in a Jar"
Wed, 09/25/2013 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Visiting Professionals Series
Haybarn Theatre, Goddard College
Plainfield, VT

This is the story of how a few unpromising high-school students discovered a lost heroine of World War II, a Polish social worker who saved hundreds of Jewish children, and how this discovery changed recent Polish social history. An unlikely, impressive and touching story which demonstrates the power of studying history, the power of goodness and the power of teenagers. 

Author Jack Mayer is a pediatrician in Rutland County, Vermont, who helped start an early Health Center at Goddard College in the 1970s. In this talk he presents his book and a slideshow.

This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council.
