Summary/Abstract: Responsibility today has become the main educational, social, cultural and political problem. Undoubtedly, the period of a special development of the child protection dates from XX century and continues until now. In the beginning, there were appeals and innovatory views on the education of children of the Swedish pedagogue and feminist Ellen Key, who proclaimed XX century as a “century of the child”. After that came the ideas, the creative work and mainly the practical activity of Janusz Korczak. When he was alive Korczak spoke on the topic of children`s protection: “side by side to the defender that knows paragraphs of the written laws, I insist to assign a place to the educator that knows the secrets of unwritten laws” – and by that as announcing the establishment of the institution ombudsman of human rights. Children`s rights are our common responsibility – of the government, the observing institutions, scientists, non-governmental activists, teachers, educators. We should fight for them, to insist, so we would not stand one day in front of the dilemma that Irena Sendlerowa posed, one of the greatest among us, who was rewarded in 2007 with the Medal of the Smile from children themselves: “And what the world did? The Great powers? The world was silent! And silence sometimes means to agree with what is happening”.
