I know there are a number of people on the forum who are interested in Janusz Korczak. The Unicorn Theatre is running a production of Dr Korczak�s Example from the 23rd September.

Details at: http://unicorntheatre.com/dr-korczaks-example

Quote:
What is more important - life? Or how you live it?

Dr Korczak was a Polish doctor and writer, who passionately championed every child's right to freedom, respect and love.

Dr Korczak's Example is set in the final days of an orphanage in the Jewish ghetto of Warsaw, where food is scarce, tempers rise and everyone wants to survive.

Award-winning playwright David Greig tells this powerful tale of Korczak�s refusal to abandon the young people in his care, and focuses on the human need for respect and hope, even in the face of injustice.

Another Korczak related event in London.

Korczak: Reformer of the World

Quote:
9 - 25 Jan 2013 at 12 Star Gallery, Europe House, 32 Smith
Square, London SW1P 3EU. Open 10.0 to 6.0, Mon - Fri.

This exhibition presents the life and work of Janusz Korczak (1878-1942): social activist who promoted the idea of children's self-governance, intellectual who fought for children's rights, and writer who understood how to communicate with children. He was devoted to children till his very end, and, rejecting the opportunity to save himself, was murdered in 1942 in a death camp together with his charges and colleagues from the Orphan's Home.
His achievements - revolutionary at the time - continue to inspire people all over the world.
