Sample text

Although Polish friends and powerful public figures offered to help him escape the ghetto to a safer place, he resolutely refused their offers. He was unequivocally committed to staying with his pupils and supporting them, no matter where they were sent or what their fate might be. All his biographers agree that from the late 1930s until August 1942, when he boarded the train from Warsaw to Treblinka with his pupils, his connection with the Jews of Warsaw and with certain Jewish traditions grew stronger.

Korczak also stated that Jews sincerely identified with the Polish nation as one that had suffered from repression and sought the national liberation to which it was entitled, and that, as individuals and collectively, the Jews contributed greatly to the positivist building of Poland as a modern, independent state. ” In contrast, the basic attitude of Poland toward the Jews was positive. Korczak did not discuss the religious differences between Jews and Catholics, but it is evident that his vision of brotherhood is based on the view that evil in our world does not respect ethnic, national, or religious boundaries, and only the torch of enlightenment can eliminate it because ignorance is the source of evil and suffering.

Anti-Jewish riots broke out frequently in certain areas of Warsaw. Extreme Polish nationalism dealt a KORCZAK’S ROAD TO RADICAL HUMANISM 37 harsh blow to Korczak in 1936, when he was asked to resign from two of the educational posts that were of deep importance to him: his program on the Polish national radio station and his position as pedagogical advisor and professional colleague of Maryna Falska, the director of the Polish orphanage (which they had established together in 1919). These two disappointments influenced Korczak’s humanistic attitudes considerably.
