On our tour of Günzburg, we were introduced to an honorary citizen, Janus Korczak. A teacher and head of an orphanage in Warsaw, he chose to remain with his students until their deaths at Treblinka. In 1991, a play to commemorate Korczak was held in Ginsburg and his tie to the community has grown since, to the point of this statue being erected to honor him. Let us remember the past so as not to repeat it.
