Ovo je čovjek koji je odbio da NE UMRE sa svojom djecom!

Janusz Korczak je čuveni poljski pedagog, pisac, ljekar i društveni radnik koji je tri puta odbio da spasi sebi život.

Prvi put to se dogodilo kada je Janusz odlučio da ne emigrira u Palestinu pred okupaciju Poljske, da ne bi Dom siročadi prepustio sudbini na volju uoči strašnih događaja.

Drugi put, kada je odbio da bježi iz varšavskog geta. Treći put bješe ovako: kada su svi štićenici Doma siročadi bili već u vozu spremnom da krene u logor, Korczaku je prišao jedan SS oficir i upitao ga:

– Jeste li vi napisali “Kralja Matijuša”? Čitao sam tu knjigu u djetinjstvu. Nije loša knjiga. Slobodni ste.

– A djeca?

– Djeca nisu. Ali vi možete napustiti vagon.

– Griješite. Ne mogu. Nisu svi ljudi nitkovi.

Poslije ovih riječi o Januszu Korczaku se više ne mora ništa reći. Ostaje nam samo da se podsjetimo njegovih 10 principa vaspitanja:

1. Ne očekuj od djeteta da bude kao ti ili kao što bi ti htio da ono bude. Pomogni mu da ne postane kao ti, nego kao ono samo.

2. Ne traži od djeteta nadoknadu za sve što si mu pružio. Dao si mu život, kako bi to moglo da se vrati? Ono će dati život nekom drugome, taj drugi će dati trećem – to je nepovratan zakon zahvalnosti.

3. Ne iskaljuj ljutnju na djetetu, da ti u starosti ne bi bilo gorko parče hljeba. Jer što posiješ to će i da nikne.

4. Ne gledaj na njegove probleme kao da su zanemarljivi. Život je svakome dat spram njegove snage i zato vjeruj da njemu nije lakše nego tebi, a možda mu je i teže pošto ono nema iskustva.

5. Ne ponižavaj!

6. Ne zaboravi da su najvažniji susreti jednog čovjeka – njegovi susreti sa djecom. Obraćaj više pažnje na njih – nikad ne znamo koga smo to sreli u djetetu.

7. Ne muči sebe ako nešto ne možeš da učiniš za svoje dijete, samo se sjeti: za dijete nije učinjeno dovoljno ako nije učinjeno sve što se može učiniti.

8. Dijete nije tiranin koji je zavladao tvojim životom, nije ni samo plod od krvi i tijela. Ono je dragocjeni pehar koji ti je život povjerio da ga čuvaš i da u njemu održavaš stvaralački plamen. To je oslobađajuća ljubav majke i oca koji ne gaje „naše“ dijete nego dušu datu im na čuvanje.

9. Znaj voljeti tuđe dijete. Nikad ne čini tuđem djetetu ono što ne bi volio da kogod čini tvome.

10. Voli svoje dijete kakvo god da je – netalentovano, nesretno, i kad poraste. Raduj mu se u svakom obraćanju jer dijete je praznik dokle god je s tobom.

“Children are not the people of tomorrow, but are the people of today. They are entitled to be taken seriously. They have a right to be treated by adults with respect as equals. They should be allowed to grow into whoever they were meant to be – the unknown person inside each of them is the hope for the future.”  – Janusz Korczak

70 Years Since the Murder of Janusz Korczak and the Children

Youth Group Members to fly dozens kites

5 August 2012

On Sunday, August 5, Yad Vashem will mark 70 years since the deportation to Treblinka of Janusz Korczak, Stefa Wilczynska, and the children of their orphanage, from the Warsaw Ghetto. The memorial ceremony will be held at 17:00 at Janusz Korczak Square at Yad Vashem. As part of a workshop to take place during the course of the day, counselors of the HaMachanot HaOlim youth movement will hear the testimony of Holocaust survivor Yitzhak Belfer, who resided in Korczak’s orphanage in Warsaw. “Just as the sea gives a child a toy – a boat, so the wind has to give him a kite,” — Janusz Korczak, The Religion of the Child

At the conclusion of the ceremony HaMachanot HaOlim counselors will fly dozens of kites in the Square of Remembrance (near the Hall of Remembrance at Yad Vashem).

Janusz Korczak was the pen name of Henryk Goldszmit, a Polish-born doctor, author and educator. Born in Warsaw to an assimilated Jewish family, Korczak dedicated his life to caring for children, particularly orphans. He believed that children should always be listened to and respected, and this belief was reflected in his work. He wrote several books for and about children, and broadcast a children's radio program. In 1912 Korczak became the director of a Jewish orphanage in Warsaw. When World War II broke out in 1939, Korczak first refused to accept the German occupation and heed their regulations (consequently spending time in jail). However, when the Jews of Warsaw were forced to move into a ghetto, Korczak refocused his efforts on the children in his orphanage. Despite offers from Polish friends to hide him on the “Aryan” side of the city, Korczak refused to abandon the children.

Stefa Wilczynska was born in 1886 in Poland and completed her studies at the University of Liège, Belgium. In 1909, she met Korczak and the two began working together. When World War I began, Korczak was recruited and Stefa remained in charge of running the orphanage, which had expanded and now housed some 150 children. In 1935, she visited Eretz Israel and lived at Ein Harod until 1939. With the Nazi occupation, the members of Ein Harod arranged for her the possibility of leaving Poland, but she turned it down and moved to the ghetto along with Dr. Korczak and the children.

On August 5, 1942, during a 2-month wave of deportations from the ghetto, the Nazis rounded up Korczak, Wilczynska and the 200 children of the orphanage. They marched in rows to the Umschlagplatz with Korczak in the lead. He and Stefa never abandoned the children, even to the very end. Korczak, Wilczynska and the children were sent to Treblinka, where they were all murdered.
