Dr. Marta Moldovan-Cywińska will talk about Dr. Janusz Korczak primarily as a great doctor, educator, educator, educational philosopher, writer and pioneer of activities for the rights of the human child. It will recall fragments of his professional and creative life and recall pages of his diary from his literary and educational activities. The bond of her speech about such an eminent figure is goodness as a value. “The spirit longs in the tight cage of the body. People feel and consider death in terms of the end, but it is only a continuation of life, another life,” he wrote. “I am not here to be loved and admired, but so that I can act and love. It is not the duty of those around me to help me, but I have the duty to take care of the world, of people.”
