Dr. Korczak’s Example
To mark the beginning of Scotland’s “Year of Young People” and World Holocaust Memorial Day, NHS Lothian and Strange Town Theatre Company presented a performance of “Dr Korczak’s Example” by David Greig.
The play tells the story of Dr Janusz Korczak, a Polish educator and children’s author. He ran a radical orphanage in Warsaw before WW2 which experimented with the principle of respecting children’s natural rights. During the war his orphanage moved to the ghetto.
The performance took place on 23rd January 2018 to an invited audience and was followed by a panel discussion which included Bruce Adamson, Children and Young People’s Commissioner, Steve Small, Creative Director, Strange Town and Linda Irvine, NHS Lothian.
