This is the first English biography of Janusz Korczak, a Polish-Jewish doctor, writer and educator, who on 6th August, 1942, sacrificed his own safety by leading two hundred orphans onto the train to Treblinka where he perished with them. Korczak was one of the first advocates of children's rights. He pioneered progressive orphanages, founded a children's newspaper and testified for children in juvenile courts. For this work the author has drawn on Korczak's writings and on interviews with orphans he raised and trained. Betty Jean Lifton is also author of "Lost and Found: The Adoption Experience", "Children of Vietnam" and "A Place Called Hiroshima".
