Janusz Korczak, Aleksander Lewin and the Polish orphanage in Monetna in the Urals

Collection Korczak Digital Repository
Description This article covers historical perspectives of the pedagogical-philanthropic activities of Aleksander Lewin (1915-2002), a pedagogy professor who produced valuable works on Korczak's philosophical thoughts and who helped promote his legacy. Between 1944-1945 in Monetna, Ural, Lewin was the director of an orphanage for Polish children. Aleksander Lewin was between the years 1937-1939 a tutor at the Orphanage. The experiences he took from there helped him establish a new orphanage in Monetna – his methods combined inspirations from Korczak with the pedagogy of Anton Makarenko. Lewin is the author of two books devoted to these themes: Problems in collective education. Pedagogical reflections based on experiences in a Polish orphanage and school in the Urals (1955) and House In the Urals. The History of Polish Children in Monetna (1987).
