Duration approx. 1.5 hours, or by arrangement
The “Janusz-Korczak-Kiste” is a project of the EJKA which provides an opportunity to learn about the life and pedagogical ideas of Janusz Korczak by simple means and to be inspired by them. The box is modelled on Dom Sierot, Korczak’s orphanage in Warsaw, so that a spatial impression can also be conveyed.
Offer 1 for children:
A simple box full of things that can be used to tell stories about Korczak arouses curiosity as well as creativity. The outer wall of the box uses texts and pictures to bring Korczak’s time closer. When the lid is opened, a miniature view into the lives of the orphans of that time is possible. Small objects that the children can take in their hands motivate them to ask questions and tell stories. The box then quickly hands over the reins to the children around it.
Offer 2 for adults (e.g. teachers, multipliers):
The box offers the possibility to tell about Korczak’s life and work in a vivid way. It is also an example of how his written testimonies, photographs of his life, the memories of contemporary witnesses, etc. continue to release creative forces and allow “things” to emerge “in his spirit”. The box can be seen as a suggestion for next possible Korczak projects for children as well as adults that go beyond the purely textual.
