Just like the book I already read White House in a Gray City: A Breathtaking Memoir of a Jewish Orphan Boy who Survived the Holocaust and this book is a warm collection of authors memories from Janusz Korczak orphanage. Those memories are presented to the reader in words and also in author's illustrations.
The difference between those two books is their length: this one is much shorter, with more illustrations and looks more like something you could give to children to read. The book I read before was written for older readers.
So, if you want to show someone younger how one man can make a difference in terrible times of Holocaust and in such an awful place like orphanage - give them this book.
‘Korczak, the legendary Polish pediatrician, author and educator, was murdered in 1942 by the Nazis when he refused to save himself and abandon his Jewish students. He was not able to betray his entire doctrine and life work, and desert his students. Instead, he marched with them, walking tall, into the Treblinka incinerators. Korczak is known as one of the pioneers of current multiple pedagogical streams. He truly understood children, loved them and had a revolutionary approach toward children. Teachers all over the world have adopted his ideas and practice.’
Many could learn a lot from this short read. Highly recommended read and a well-deserved five stars from me.
Itzchak Belfer has shared with us a rare gem... a positive orphanage experience. What an outpouring of love, time, energy, and devotion by Dr. Korczak and Sophia into the lives of hundreds of children.
This book was written for children but it was too simplistic and was lacking in details that I know children would have liked to have. That missing fifth star is for what it could have been.
As a reviewer for Tomoson, I received a free eBook in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
