About Dr Korczak’s Example
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Set in 1942, in the final days of an orphanage in the Jewish ghetto of Warsaw, where food is scarce, tempers rise and everyone just wants to survive. David Greig’s play tells of Janusz Korczak, a Polish doctor and writer who championed every child’s right to freedom, respect and love.
A powerful, sobering and sadly still relevant tale of one man’s refusal to abandon the young people in his care, and of the human need for respect and hope even in the face of injustice. Based on real events.
‘This story happened. It did happen.’
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Dr Korczak’s Example are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
