The separation of Jewish and Catholic children upset him, but he adapted to the political and social situation, although it forced him to significantly reduce his humanistic educational activity. Given his deep humanism, one can understand his great sensitivity to the suffering of the community in which he had been born, and with which he had identified all his life. His boundless compassion, which impelled him to offer active support to his primary community in ordinary times, naturally motivated him to continue doing so in a time of cruel distress.

(1968: 27) Like the figures Deutscher mentions, Korczak was born to upper middle- class highly Polanised acculturated Jews who defined themselves as Poles of Jewish origins. Like them, he underwent acculturation in the high culture of the country in which he lived. Their life’s work was located both in the country’s culture and society and in a new universal culture of their construction, which transcends existing cultures.
Korczak wore a Polish army uniform under his work clothes and never wore the Jewish star. In conclusion, Korczak identified fully with Polish language and culture and occasionally found it necessary to display his Polishness, without indicating his Jewish origins. In this Korczak was typical of the third generation of assimilated Polish Jews, who were uncomfortably aware that they were not regarded as “pure” Poles. Conversely, their solidarity with other Jews aroused doubts among the Poles as to their loyalty to Poland.
