NOBEL PEACE PRIZE NOMINATION

 

The Life in a Jar students wish to report that Irena Sendler was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.  She did not receive the prize, but did receive tremendous recognition in support. We realize she did not meet the criteria of "significant activities during the past two years," but we appreciate the Nobel committee's acceptance of the nomination.

We thank you for the many support letters, which were used for this process.

  1. Irena's nomination resulted in world-wide attention to her story and Holocaust education.
  2. A criteria for the Peace Prize is being involved in significant activities during the past two years. 
  3. There were over 180 nominations in 2007. The announcement was made on October 12, 2007 in Oslo, Norway.
  4. The students gathered over 200 letters of support from around the world for Irena's nomination.
