The World Knew: Jan Karski's Mission for Humanity

The World Knew

The 20-panel exhibit is dedicated to Jan Karski who was a diplomat, Polish WWII Résistance fighter and eyewitness to the German Nazi atrocities in the death camps. He single-handedly tried to stop the Holocaust by reporting to the West asking the Allies to take action while there was still time to save millions of lives.

The exhibit was created by the Polish History Museum in Warsaw and was made available by Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Jan Karski Educational Foundation.
