    “The true story of a man who told of humanity’s greatest crimes while there was still time to stop them.”

    Jan Karski was a Polish soldier, a reluctant World War II hero and Holocaust witness. After surviving the devastation of the Blitzkrieg, Karski swears allegiance to the Polish Underground and risks his life to carry the first eyewitness reports of war-torn Poland to the Western world, and ultimately, the Oval Office. Escaping a Gestapo prison, bearing witness to the despair of the Warsaw ghetto and confronted by the inhumanity of a death camp, Karski endures unspeakable mental anguish and physical torture to stand tall in the halls of power and speak the truth.

    However, his report was ignored.

    After the war, Karski earned his Ph.D. at Georgetown University, where he taught in the School of Foreign Service for 40 years. Karski was made an honorary citizen of Israel and was awarded the distinction “Righteous Among the Nations” by Yad Vashem. He died in Washington, DC, in July 2000.

    “We must tell our children about how this evil was
    allowed to happen, because so many people
    succumbed to their darkest instincts, because so
    many others stood silent. But let us also tell our
    children about the Righteous Among the Nations,
    among them was Jan Karski… who told the truth, all
    the way to President Roosevelt himself.”

    said President Barack Obama, awarding Karski the Presidential Medal of Freedom
