H IAS Processes Total

United Hias Service offices seeking

sian occupation, 928 Czech Jews

son, executive vice president,

J. Hyams Tells
Joe Hyams was not "there" —
not in the Warsaw ghetto. But his
compassion and understanding is
clearly evident in his new book,
"A Field of Buttercups," published
on the 25th anniversary of the re-
sistance in the Warsaw ghetto by
This powerful book is the story
of the Our Home Orphanage in
Warsaw and the man who cared
for the 200 Jewish children at the
home, Dr. Janusz Korczak.
Korczak was one of Poland's
most famous writers and teachers.
At the age of 30; he gave up a suc-
cessful medical practice to take
over the orphanage. In July 1942,
the Treblinka H extermination
camp was opened, and each day
from 5,000 to 6,000 Warsaw Jews
were shipped to the camp's gas
chambers. The day arrived when
the Our Home children were se-
lected for extermination. Korczak,
because of his wide reputation as
a writer, was offered the chance
to save himself. But, he refused.
Ile would not leave his orphans.
Before Korczak and his children
were packed into the freight cars
to take them to Treblinka, their
yellow Star of David armbands
were cut off and thrown into the
center of the courtyard. "It looked
like a field of buttercups," com-
mented a Polish policeman. The
image is a striking contrast to
the fate which awaited Korczak
and the children.
