Synopsis

The story of a man who risked life and limb to expose the atrocities of the Holocaust to the world "I had the feeling from the moment I saw Karski that he carried secret, invisible wounds in him...I saw he was fighting back the memories." - Elie Wiesel "A significant account of personal heroism-not only dramatic as a story but also a compelling moral message regarding the human condition ...a superb read." - Zbigniew Brezinski NOW IN PAPER! Working for the Polish Underground, Jan Karski witnessed first hand the horrors of the Holocaust. Surviving Soviet captivity and Gestapo torture, he escaped Poland in 1942 and embarked on a heroic crusade to give Allied leaders his eye witness report of Nazi extermination of European Jews. Karski is the first definitive account of the little-known episode-one of the earliest documentations of atrocities to reach the west and perhaps the most significant warning of the genocide to come. Karski's story introduces vital new insights about the Polish Underground, and about the Allies' reaction to the Holocaust. E. THOMAS WOOD (Nashville, Tennessee) is a reporter for the Tennessean in Nashville. STANISLAW M.

JANKOWSKI (Cracow, Poland) is a journalist and historian. He is the leading authority on the Polish Underground.
