"Warsaw's Pied Piper, astonishingly ahead of his time, is still able to move, inspire, and provoke any of us who live or work with children."--"The Washington Post Book World"We are in [Lifton's] debt for reconstructing the life of this amazing man....Few biographies have the power to move, to inspire, to enlighten. Hers does."--"USA Today"A reading of "The King of Children makes known a remarkable man....A lesser man would have been broken by the tasks Korczak set himself....His strategy, sent to the head from the heart, was to remember as few can how it felt to be a child."--Geoffrey Wolff, "The New York Times Book ReviewVom Verlag:
The tragic story of Janusz Korczak, who chose to perish in Treblinka, rather than abandon the Jewish orphans in his care, "King of Children" was a "New York Times" Notable Book of the Year in 1988. The edition includes a passionate introduction by Elie Wiesel that sets the tone for the inspiring saga of a man who introduced progressive orphanages in his native Poland, defended children's rights in court, and wrote classic works of children's literature and child psychology. Korczak lives as a moral exemplar in this fine biography. It is previously published by St. Martin Press (ISBN 0-312-15560-3).
