Movie Info

The life of Polish pediatrician Janusz Korczak (Wojtek Pszoniak) is the subject of Andrzej Wajda's docudrama. Also known as an author who wrote primarily for young readers, Korczak's name became legend as a result of the Jewish orphanage he established in Warsaw. When the invasion of the Nazis in 1939 forced him to move his students to the ghetto, he struggled on without provisions or adequate space, refusing to give in to Nazi pressures. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Korczak

All Critics (1)

If Korczak isn't an artistic success, it's very much a historical success, offering a brief and powerful film school for interested filmmakers, and thus leading to better films.

Audience Reviews for Korczak

A haunting and powerful film of a true hero of the Holocaust who doesn't seem to get the world wide recognition that he deserves. He was protective of his orphanage children and was willing to sacrifice himself for the opportunity to save them (if one existed)
