Wie man ein Kind lieben soll by Janusz Korczak( Book )

Janusz Korczaks Meisterwerk ist ein Leitfaden für Eltern und Erzieher, die ihre Kinder entdecken wollen. Korzcak war einer der bedeutendsten Pädagogen des vorigen Jahrhunderts - aber er war kein Systematiker. Letztlich postuliert er ein einziges Prinzip, aus dem sich alles Handeln ergibt: das Prinzip der uneingeschränkten Achtung vor Kindern. Diese Achtung, die von uneingeschränkter Liebe getragen war, setzte er um in pragmatische Erziehungsleitlinien. Janusz Korczak, geboren am 22. 7. 1878 als Henryk Goldszmidt, gestorben (vermutlich am 5. 8. 1942 im Konzentrationslager Treblinka, wohin er 200 Kinder des von ihm geleiteten Waisenhauses begleitet hatte

Kaytek the wizard by Janusz Korczak( Book )

49 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kaytek, a mischievous schoolboy who wants to become a wizard, is surprised to discover that he is able to perform magic spells and change reality. He begins to lead a double life: a powerful wizard in the dress of an ordinary boy. It's all great fun using magic to cause strange incidents in his school and neighborhood, but soon Kaytek's increasing powers cause major chaos around the city of Warsaw. Disillusioned, he leaves the country and wanders the world in search of the meaning of his good intentions, his unique abilities, and their consequences. Revolving around the notion that power is not without responsibility, nor without repercussions, this story speaks to every child's dream of freeing themselves from the endless control of adults, and shaping the world to their own designs

Ghetto diary by Janusz Korczak( Book )

13 editions published between 1978 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Janusz Korczak (1879-1942) is one of the legendary figures to emerge from the Holocaust. A successful pediatrician and well-known author in his native Warsaw, he gave up a brilliant medical career to devote himself to the care of orphans. Like so many other Jews, Korczak was sent into the Warsaw Ghetto after the Nazi occupation of Poland. He immediately set up an orphanage for more than 200 children. Many of his admirers, Jewish and gentile, offered to rescue him from the ghetto, but Korczak refused to leave his small charges. When the Nazi's ordered the children to board a train that was to carry them to the Treblinka death camp, Korczak went with them, despite the Nazis' offer of special treatment. His selfless behavior in caring for these children's lives and deaths has made him beloved throughout the world: he has been honored by UNESCO and commemorated on postage stamps in both Poland and Israel."--Jacket
