* Dee and Dum from ''Webcomic/AliceAndTheNightmare'' claim that working with kids is the best part of their job, although Alt Text suggests that it's not entirely true. Their students certainly like them, though.

* The doctor, paediatrician, and author of children's books (including ''Janasz Korczak and the Pretty Swordsweeperlady'' and ''Child of the Drawing Room'') Januscz Korczak was reputedly one of these. Known variously as 'Mister Doctor' or 'The Old Doctor', he never had children of his own but ran two orphanages in Warsaw in the 1930s. When Warsaw's Jewish Orphanage was forced to relocate to the municipal Jewish Ghetto in autumn 1939 he moved into the Ghetto to be with them. In August 1942 the Jewish Council of Warsaw deported a number of unproductive demographics in response to the (German) Generalgouvernement's demand that they hand over a certain percentage of their population for 'deportation to the east' (i.e. euthanasia). The orphanage was written off. Even though he was not to be deported and was guaranteed protection by the Jewish Council, Polish Resistance, and reputedly the German Order Police (some say they simply wanted to avert a potential PR disaster, others that they had read his books to their own children), he voluntarily accompanied the 192 orphans to keep them calm. [[UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust They were processed by the Treblinka extermination facility on the 7th of August.]] ** His is the only individual name commemorated at [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c0/Treblinka_Memorial_2013_01.JPG the Treblinka Memorial.]] Every shard bar his represents a processed community.

Anyway, the trope description clearly states: "Overlaps with Wouldn't Hurt a Child, as characters who fit this trope not only are reluctant to injure children, but would go out of their way to protect children if it was necessary." That means that it doesn't count as played strait if he let the child-killers go free. At the very least Alexei Nikolaevich should be mentioned. If you still object to this compromise edit, we can discuss it in the discussion.

** Subverted in the execution of Alexei Nikolaevich (who was only thirteen years old, and was completely innocent), as Lenin approved of it after the fact and did nothing to punish those responsible. [[WordofSaintPaul Leon Trotsky]] even suggested in his journal that Lenin ordered the execution himself, though to this day there is no definitive proof.
