This man deserved, so we listened to him not only life but also death. Janusz Korczak did not leave their pupils even in the gas ovens of Treblinka, and died with them, although he offered to save lives.

«If we divide mankind into adults and children, and life — in childhood and adulthood, it appears that children and childhood — this is a very large part of humanity and life. Just busy with their own concerns, their struggles, we do not notice it, as noticed previously, a woman, a man, enslaved tribes and peoples. We were arranged so that children as little as possible interfere with us, that they as little understood that we really are and what really do”.

“… In the realm of the senses he [ the child] is superior to us because he knows no brakes. In the field of intelligence at least equal to us. He has it all. He only lacks experience. This kind of person is so often the child, and the child is an adult. The difference is that he earns his bread, which, as we have in the content, he is forced to obey our demands…”.

This type of conversation will only aggravate my condition, which will be even worse than it was before. Pity makes me feel unhappy, issues — to protect themselves, and most of all I hate when I hear that I have no reason to feel what I feel.

With children the same thing. They, too, can help themselves, if someone is willing to listen to them and empathize with them. But the word empathy does not come to us in the head in a natural way. It is not our ” mother tongue”. Most of us grew up in an atmosphere of denial of feelings. To master this new language endorsement, we need to learn his techniques and to practice them”.
