Jewish, Gentile Groups to Honor Korczak
With Literary Prize Pope Pledges Aid

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Pope John Paul II has as-
sured the Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith and
the Polish-American
Catholic Committee of his
"special interest and sup-
port" for their joint project
to honor the martyred
Polish-Jewish humanita-
rian, Janusz Korczak.
Officials of the ADL, the
Polish-American Congress,
the American Council of
Polish Cultural Clubs and
the North American Study
Center for Polish Affairs
met with the Pope to an-
nounce the establishment of
an international Janusz
Korczak Literary Prize for
children's books.
A physician, educator and
pioneer in child welfare,
Korczak, though offered
refuge for himself in Au-
gues, 1942, chose to perish
in the Treblinka concentra-
tion camp with children
from his orphanage, rather
than abandon them.

Describing Korczak as
a "rare human being,"
the Pope told the 14-
member group assem-
bled in his private study
that "he was a worthy
symbol of the work _of
brotherhood you are un-
dertaking." -
According to Nathan
Perlmutter, ADL's national
director, the prize, an an-
nual event, will be pre-
sented in two categories —
the first for literary works
written for children, and
another prize for a book
about children but written
for adults.
The Pontiff praised the
delegation for its selection
of Korczak, who would have
been 100 years old this year.
"Korczak is an ideal symbol
of morality and religion,"
the Pope said. "And you
have my admiration, devo-
tion and my blessing in this
important work."
According to Perlmutter,

the first Janusz Korczak
Prize will be awarded in
November. "Selection of the
winners will be made by a
committee of scholars,
editors and literary critics,"
he said, "with Pope John
Paul II invited to serve as
Honorary Chairman."

,

Awards in the amount of
$1,000 each will be made in
one or more of the following
categories of published,.
works: The trade book writ-
ten for children, best
exemplifying the principles
of selflessness and human
dignity by which Dr.
Korczak lived and died; the
most exemplary book writ-
ten about the welfare and
nurturing of children di-
rected to parents, teachers,
physicians, counselors or
other members of the help-
ing professions. Books pub-
lished anywhere in the
world, Perlmutter said will
be eligible for the competi-
tion.
