Humanitarian hero Irena Sendler to have statue unveiled in Newark

Few people in the UK may know of Polish humanitarian hero Irena Sendler and the sacrifices she made during World War II. But her story is one of monumental importance and one that Newark and Sherwood District Council, Newark Town Council and the Polish Cultural Institute in London want to share to ensure that her story becomes a legacy that will never be forgotten.

On Saturday 26 June 2021 a statue of Irena Sendler will be unveiled at Newark’s Fountain Gardens on London Road, at a small COVID-secure ceremony. The event is invitation only and due to Covid restrictions the general public will not be able to attend.
