Mister Doctor [electronic resource] : Janusz Korczak & the Orphans of the Warsaw Ghetto
Description:
Nothing—not even the chance to live—makes Dr. Korczak abandon the children of the Warsaw Ghetto. November 1940. One hundred and sixty Jewish orphans, forced by the Nazis to leave their orphanage, walk through the streets of Warsaw towards the ghetto. Led by their beloved director, Doctor Korczak, the children are defiantly joyful. In the ghetto, people everywhere are dying of disease and starvation, but the children’s spirits are sustained by the devotion of “Mister” Doctor.These children will never grow up: in August 1942, they board the train that will carry them to the death camps. Offered his freedom, Doctor Korczak refuses to abandon the children and proudly joins them on their last journey.This profoundly moving illustrated book, based on a true story, allows young readers to meet the remarkable man whose humanity and bravery still stand as a glimmer of light in one of history's darkest periods.
