Janusz and Stefa: A True Story of Human Dignity in the Midst of the Holocaust

A musical drama honoring Janusz Korczak, beloved Jewish doctor, author, and advocate for children’s rights, and Stefa Wilczyńska, his visionary partner, who dedicated their lives’ work to the cause of orphans and would later perish in the Holocaust.

“One day, around 5 August…I happened to see Janusz Korczak and his orphans leaving the ghetto. The evacuation of the Jewish orphanage run by Janusz Korczak [and Stefania “Stefa” Wilczyńska] had been ordered for that morning. The children were to have been taken away alone. He had the chance to save himself, and it was only with difficulty that he persuaded the Germans to take him too. He had spent long years of his life with children, and now, on this last journey, he would not leave them alone.” [An excerpt from The Pianist, by Wladyslaw Szpilman]
