“Korczak of the Children” – Videocassette or DVD with activity guide

This documentary film is based on the testimonies of three “Korczak children” and an educator-trainee on the staff of Korczak’s orphanage, who offer memories of their youth amid the Polish landscape and in the orphanage.

The testimonies and texts, the visual images of Warsaw, accompanied by a moving musical score – combine in a lyrical film that takes us back for a brief while to a world of light, shining in the midst of a surrounding darkness.


The accompanying booklet includes:

  • selected texts from Korczak’s writings
  • reference to resources by and about Korczak
  • biographical notes
  • suggestions for activities

Length: 30 minutes

Narration in Hebrew and Polish; English and Russian subtitles
