Janusz korczak trailer


Idealistic pediatrician Janusz Korczak (Wojtek Pszoniak) opens a makeshift orphanage in an abandoned school in Warsaws Jewish ghetto during World War II, soon providing shelter to over 200 children whose parents were either killed or sent to concentration camps. Korczak does his best to protect his innocent charges from the collapse of law and order thats happening in the streets outside, resisting calls to save himself while hoping the Nazis will spare the orphans from the camps.

Contents

Korczak, is a 1990 film by Andrzej Wajda shot in black-and-white, about Polish-Jewish humanitarian Janusz Korczak. It was screened out of competition at the 1990 Cannes Film Festival.

Reception

Among the strongest defendants of the epic was Marek Edelman, the Polish Jew who survived the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Wajda himself, saw the idea of showing the children being led into the Treblinka gas chambers as unnecessary addition of tearjerking moments. Annette Insdorf, a film scholar and strong supporter of Wajda, considers Korczak to be a masterpiece alongside Wajdas own Ashes and Diamonds, in her commentary of Criterion Collections DVD release of Wajdas War Trilogy.
