“Every time you walk into church, the first thing you see is a man on a cross. He died to save us-not to give us everything we want-to save us. That's what's so hard to understand. It's not about him answering your prayers-it's about you being like him not matter what happens on this Earth. 'Thy will be done.' There will always be sadness and pain.”
Jack Mayer, Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project

“there is no complete written Polish history of the Warsaw ghetto. Think about what this means. How could something so important in a nation’s history be ignored? It is not forgotten. Every Pole knows. It is ignored.”
Jack Mayer, Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project
