Henryk Goldszmit, better known by his pen name, Janusz Korczak, was a Polish patriot, a pioneering pedagogue, a literary lion, and a Holocaust hero. Although his life is its own legacy, Goldszmit/Korczak left behind many published works for and about children that are still popular today. In this talk, Daniel Stone, a retired professor of Polish and Jewish History at the University of Winnipeg, will introduce Goldszmit/Korczak and discuss some of his favourite works as a reader and admirer.
