A unique gift collection of the writing of Janusz Korczak
Janusz Korczak was one of the worlds’s most original thinkers on children who put his ideas into practice in a powerful and inspiring way. During his lifetime he gained huge recognition as a doctor, writer, psychologist, philosopher, principle of two orphanages and educator.
Korczak devoted his life to children, living and working amongst them all his life. His theories are revered by Bruno Bettleheim and Alice Miller. Studies of his work have been made in over 20 languages, but this will be the first time that his ideas have appeared in a book outside of an academic text.
For many people he is considered a saint and a martyr. His orphange was in the Jewish Ghettos of Warsaw and when the clearing began he was urged by friends and the Nazis (who were anxious not to attract attention to such a well known world figure) to abandon the orphange. Korczak steadfastly refused to leave his children and when the time came he calmly walked with them to the train that was to take them to Treblinka.
Since that time a film has been made about his life by the award winning Polish director Andre Wajda and biographies written of his life. In many countries of Europe his life and ideas appear on the school syllabus.
The book will contain a short biography and over 100 inspirational quotations on children.
