Book Talk: The Good Doctor of Warsaw

Book Talk: The Good Doctor of Warsaw
 
  6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In this event Elisabeth Gifford will speak about her new book The Good Doctor of Warsaw, which is based on the true story of one of Poland's greatest men, Dr Janusz Korczak.

Deeply in love and about to marry, students Misha and Sophia flee a Warsaw under Nazi occupation for a chance at freedom. Forced to return to the Warsaw ghetto, they help Misha's mentor, Dr Janusz Korczak, care for the two hundred children in his orphanage. As Korczak struggles to uphold the rights of even the smallest child in the face of unimaginable conditions, he becomes a beacon of hope for the thousands who live behind the walls.

Cost: Free of Charge
