His boundless compassion, which impelled him to offer active support to his primary community in ordinary times, naturally motivated him to continue doing so in a time of cruel distress. The intensification of anti-Semitism in Poland during the 1930s, and especially in the last three years of that decade, brought Korczak closer to his Jewish origins and to the Jewish community of Warsaw. In essence, he found himself driven back to the progressive and socialist Jewish segments of society, where there were many young Jews who belonged to Zionist KORCZAK’S ROAD TO RADICAL HUMANISM 41 youth movements and intended to immigrate to Palestine.

He has KORCZAK’S ROAD TO RADICAL HUMANISM 23 no orders to shoot. And perhaps he was a village teacher in civilian life, or a notary, a street sweeper in Leipzig, a waiter in Cologne? What would he do if I nodded to him? Waved my hand in a friendly gesture? Perhaps he doesn’t even know that things are—as they are? He may have arrived only yesterday, from far away. pdf: 77) How could it be that a man in the hell of the Holocaust, under the evil rule of Nazism, while his Jewish brothers were being sent to the Treblinka death camp, saw the human face of the German soldier serving the Nazi regime, standing on a roof across with him, holding a loaded rifle, which he might aim at him at any time, and still think good, tender thoughts about him?

However, in my opinion, it is an error to interpret these acts as expressions of Jewish or Zionist national identity. Nor did his quiet spiritual resistance to the Nazis derive from his Jewish consciousness. Attributing specifically Jewish significance to acts that do not fit under that rubric is a slight to Korczak’s humanism and detracts from the pride a Jew may feel because that supreme humanist came from the Jewish people. To sum up, the two interrelated positive features of Korcak’s Jewish identity are his refusal (like that of his parents) either to undergo radical assimilation by conversion to Catholicism or to join radical atheist Marxist-­ communist movements (in which Judaism as an ethnic and/or religious culture was negated).
