‘CONFESSIONS OF A BUTTERFLY’

One-man play


Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th January

Mumford Theatre, Anglia Ruskin University

Cambridge, CB1 1PT

Coinciding with Holocaust Memorial Week, writer/actor Jonathan Salt performs his one-man play ‘Confessions of a Butterfly’.

Janusz Korczak, the renowned Polish Jewish educator, physician, writer and director of two orphanages in Warsaw, created a progressive utopian home for the children in his care. His work became the basis for the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. In 1940 his Jewish orphanage was closed by the Nazis, and he and the children were moved into the Warsaw Ghetto. Despite offers of escape he always refused to abandon them to their fate. August 5th 1942 Janusz Korczak leads the 200 children in his care through the streets of the Warsaw Ghetto to the trains waiting to transport them to their deaths in Treblinka. We spend the last hours in his company in the Ghetto orphanage as he contemplates his life and prepares to meet his destiny.
