Dr Korczak's Example is David Greig’s powerful tale about Janusz Korczak, the heroic Jewish educator who founded an orphanage in the Warsaw ghetto.
Set in the final days of the orphanage, where food is scare, tempers rise and everyone wants to survive, Dr Korczak's Example tells the story of the educator’s refusal to abandon his institution.
Through the eyes of two of the orphans, Dr Korczak's Example focuses on his insistence that everyone should live by the key values of tolerance and respect even in the face of injustice.
