A play reading to mark 20 years since the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, followed by a discussion with the Children’s Rights Alliance, chaired by young people.
Based on real life events, the play is set in the final days of a childrens orphanage in the Warsaw ghetto. Using actors and dolls to represent both the children and the soldiers, a powerful and emotional world emerges, where Dr Korczaks thinking is radically challenged by a young boy, Adzio.
Dr Korczak is a much adored childrens writer in Eastern Europe and was in the 1930s a radical theorist on childrens rights. He put these strong ideas into practice in the orphanages he ran in Warsaw. Today some of these ideas are central to our thinking about children.
This event is free and open to people of all ages.
If you are involved with a school or youth group that would like to take part in this event please contact Melanie on 01 8819 625 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
