Korczak’s Children

The play chronicles the selfless acts of Janusz Korczak, the teacher and director of the Warsaw Ghetto. Korczak strove to give the children a sense of normalcy in the horrific ghetto and eventually chose to leave with them for the Treblinka death camp. Another character in Brady's drama is Emmanuel Ringelblum whose writings, and those of others in a group he led, survived the Holocaust and provide insight into life in the Warsaw Ghetto.
