An excerpt from "The Children's Republic," a play by Hannah Moscovitch, performed by cast members from the sold-out 2009 production, presented by the Great Canadian Theater Company and the Ottawa School of Speech and Drama. About "The Children's Republic": Dr. Janusz Korczak is the King of Children. Doctor, author and champion of childrens rights, Janusz runs a remarkable orphanage in Poland. But when the Nazis invade, the Jewish orphans are forced into the Warsaw Ghetto. Janusz follows to protect their rights and dignity. In a world devoid of freedom and even the necessities of life, what else do you have but your honour and ideals? A powerful and true tale of beauty, heroism and legacy.
