A Life of Education and Love

Marking 75 Years since the Murder of Janusz Korzak

"Whoever was in the ghetto saw how mothers protected their children, how they fed them but did not eat, a boundless love. Of course, it was catastrophic, there was death all around, but within that was so much love… When I ask myself where I get the strength to write, it is not from the horrific sights, but rather from the visions of love that were there, that were everywhere. Janusz Korczak and Stefa Wilczyńska chose a path of education and love, and never veered from it – even at the cost of their lives."

Israeli novelist and Holocaust survivor Aharon Appelfeld
