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.
