'In The Teacher of Warsaw, Mario Escobar tries to recreate Korczak's complexities, which have largely been erased by his martyrdom during the Holocaust . . . The Teacher of Warsaw is a nuanced fictionalization, and it may motivate readers to learn more about the real man behind it - whose tragic circumstances left him unable to save the Jewish children in his care.'--Jewish Book Council
In The Teacher of Warsaw, Escobar's intimate, first-person delivery is flawlessly researched. Its historic timeline unfurls with heightening drama from the vantage point of one selfless man dedicated to the wellbeing of Polish children in harrowing wartime conditions against all odds and costs. It's a sobering, memorable story taking the reader through tragic events in occupied Warsaw, from September 1939 to May of 1943. An important, sensitive look at the triumph of the human spirit over evil, The Teacher of Warsaw is based on a true story and epitomizes the very best of poignant historical fiction.--New York Journal of Books
'Mario Escobar shares the true story of Janusz Korczak, a respected leader and speaker whose life was dedicated to children . . . Escobar's account draws readers in with compelling, emotional, mind-searing descriptions while delving into human nature, evil, prejudices, and forgiveness . . . The daily lessons Teacher shares of showing love without expectations contrast with the often-contagious laughter of Henryk at unexpected moments, granting readers comfort and healing in dreadful situations.'--Historical Novel Society
