Dr. Janusz Korczak was one of the most innovative European educators during the first half of the twentieth century. His book, King Matt the First, remains as one of the most beloved children’s stories in Poland. Dr. Korczak played a heroic role during the Holocaust, serving as a guardian of orphans in the doomed Warsaw Ghetto.
