Publisher's Summary

The start of the Second World War changed everything in Poland irrevocably—except for one man’s capacity to love.

September 1, 1939. Sixty-year-old Janusz Korczak and the students and teachers at his Dom Sierot Jewish orphanage are outside enjoying a beautiful day in Warsaw. Hours later, their lives are altered forever when the Nazis invade. Suddenly treated as an outcast in his own city, Janusz—a respected leader known for his heroism and teaching—is determined to do whatever it takes to protect the children from the horrors to come.

When more than 400,000 Jewish people are rounded up and forced to live in the 1.3-square-mile walled compound of the Warsaw ghetto, Janusz and his friends take drastic measures to shield the children from disease and starvation. With dignity and courage, the teachers and students of Dom Sierot create their own tiny army of love and bravely prepare to march toward the future—whatever it may hold.

Unforgettable, devastating, and inspired by a real-life hero of the Holocaust, The Teacher of Warsaw reminds the world that one single person can incite meaning, hope, and love.

thank you for writing this book

I have read all I can about Irena and the orphans and their care givers. God have mercy. May we not forget. May we stand boldly for our children in 2022.

A brilliant audio

🌿Book Review🌿
The Teacher of Warsaw
By: Mario Escobar

If you are a historical fiction fan, go run, and get this book or download the audio - Zach Hoffman did a phenomenal job. Based on the time Janusz Korczak spent in the Warsaw Ghetto during WWII in charge of an Orphanage, it is eye opening and so very sad. The hell and inhumane way Jews were treated... we can't even comprehend. I know I can't.  Hell on Earth. It was a war that also brought out the best in some. Janusz was one of them. He was a doctor, a teacher and in charge of 200+ children. He never stopped fighting for them.
This book definitely brought forth multiple feelings and tears. My first read by Escobar but it definitely won't be my last.
