Description

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 Korczak, care for the two hundred children in his orphanage. As Korczak struggles to uphold the rights of the children in the face of unimaginable conditions, he becomes a beacon of hope for the thousands living behind the walls. As the noose tightens around the ghetto Misha and Sophia are torn from one another, forcing them to face their worst fears alone. Meanwhile, Korczak must confront a terrible darkness.

Professional reviews

"Set in the ghettos of wartime Warsaw, this is a sweeping, poignant and heartbreaking tale, based on the true story of one of World War II's quiet heroes - Dr Janusz Korczak. “With powerful themes of loss, hope and what it means to be human, The Good Doctor of Warsaw is a brave, moving and important book.” KATHERINE CLEMENTS, author of The Crimson Ribbon. “Powerful, harrowing and ultimately uplifting. Elisabeth Gifford has achieved an extraordinary blend of fact and fiction.” ANDREW TAYLOR"
