Dr. Korczak, the founding father of positive discipline, presented by Dr. Daniel Halpérin

During an educational presentation by Dr. Halpérin the 13th and 14th grade students learned about the Polish writer and teacher Janusz Korczak. Dr. Halpérin briefly touched on the emergence of human rights, before continuing on to discuss the chronology of children’s rights and Dr. Korczak’s contributions in the field.
Dr. Korczak believed that each child was unique, and had the right to respect his or her personality, needs and aspirations. The Jewish paediatrician founded and managed two orphanages in Warsaw, where he practiced these principles of children’s rights until he was deported to Treblinka in 1942. 
Today, Dr. Halpérin, the president of the Swiss Association of Friends of Dr. Korczak, promotes children’s rights. He has more than 30 years of experience leading the paediatric emergency department at the Geneva Hospital, and has created a child protection group in order to prevent violence against young people. His cause is now symbolised by hundreds of giraffes. 
The students enjoyed Dr. Halpérin’s informative presentation, and were able to ask him questions about his field of expertise.
