The Post Office

“And in 1942, in the Warsaw ghetto, a Polish version [of The Post Office or Dak Ghar by Tagore] was the last play performed in the orphanage of Janusz Korczak.  When asked why he chose the play, he answered that ‘eventually one had to learn to accept serenely the angel of death’. Within a month, he and his children were taken away and gassed.”
