The story of Dr. Janus Korczak, a Polish pediatrician, who ran an orphanage in Warsaw, is a story that needed to be told. Itzchak Belfer was taken in by Dr. Korczak at age 7 because his father had died and his mother was unable to care for 6 children. This story is one that could best be told by someone whose life was changed by Dr. Korczak and Mr. Belfer’s sensitive drawings complete the picture. This book is perfect for children and adults and would be ideal to read together. More people should discover this book, and the story of Dr. Korczak!
This is a children's book, and it's basically just a short biography of Janusz Korczak. I'd heard of Janusz Korczak before, but I didn't know much about him beyond his belief in treating children with respect, which I wholeheartedly agree with. This book was written and illustrated by a man who grew up in his care. It's a sweet little story with some good lessons, such as being accountable for your own behavior, tucked inside. It's a sweet story, but it's also sad. The book begins with the author being left at an orphanage by his mother, which is just a kind of soul-crushing prospect to me, as a parent. I understand that the author had a good life and his mother was acting in his best interest in sending him to live somewhere that he could have more than she was able to give him, but still it is very sad to think about. The story also ends on a sad note, due to the fate of the real-life Dr. Korczak. The artwork in the book is nice and just feels perfectly suited to the story, the book is well written and well edited. I think this book is a great addition to every child's library and is a great introduction to a troubling part of world history that we must always remember.
Since I already read one of the Itzchak Belfer's books about Janush Korczak I knew what I would read about: about a wonderful man who succeeded to turn a very sad place like all orphanages are, in a real home for it's little and no so little inhabitants. 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.
This is a wonderfully written and illustrated book by Itzchak Belfer. It’s not an easy story to read because of the nature of being in an orphanage, but it’s full of hope and inspiration.
‘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.
As an adoptive mom of four foster children, I am always interested in the techniques of someone who has taken in children and done it right.
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.
I have already read one Itzchak Belfer's account of Janus Korczak and growing up in his care, so I thought I knew what I was getting myself into. And still, I found this book to be incredibly touching and inspiring. The previous one, White House in a Gray City: A Breathtaking Memoir of a Jewish Orphan Boy who Survived the Holocaust, was targeted at an older audience, but this one is perfect for children! If you'd like to ease your kids into teaching them about the Holocaust and how it is possible for some light to shine even in the darkest of times, I whole-heartedly recommend this book! The story flows easily and the illustrations are lovely!
I have previously read "White House in a Gray City: A Breathtaking Memoir of a Jewish Orphan Boy who Survived the Holocaust" which is the book from the same author and about the same subject. Author shares with us his memories about a man who helped him and many like him to not only survive a horrible time but to thrive in it. Korczaks endless love, support and knowledge left such an impression on authors life and with his warm, beautiful writing he tells us the story and keeps the memory of the good doctor alive. Book also contains authors illustrations which makes it perfect for younger readers.
What a wonderful testimony to the love of a man who loved children, who cared for children, who gave them the support and guidance which many children did not receive. This orphanage was Nike no other. You will want to read this story
