Korczak: Drawing with a child

Honoring Janusz Korczak

Holocaust Remembrance Day

April 11th, 2010 at 2pm.

Gathering at the Shining Mountain Center for Peaceful Childhood, Inc. This year’s theme at the Holocaust Museum is “Stories of Freedom: What we do really matters”. Learn about Janusz Korczak, champion of children who lived and died for them in Poland (a talk by Dr. Liba Engel from Queens College, NY) and the way his legacy continues at our Center, where we work with children who are faced with learning, behavioral, emotional and health challenges. If you are a parent, educator or healthcare provider, you don’t want to miss this special event at the Shining Mountain.
