Jan Karski — Humanitarian Hero
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
Jan Karski was a member of the Polish underground during World War II whose mission was to inform the Allied powers of Nazi crimes against the Jews of Europe in order to stop the Holocaust. Karski infiltrated the Warsaw Ghetto and a Nazi Transit Camp and carried his dreadful eyewitness report of the atrocities to Britain and the United States, hoping that it would shake the conscience of the powerful leaders or – as he would later call them – the Lords of Humanity. For his extraordinary efforts, Karski was named Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem.
