The World Knew: Jan Karski’s Mission for Humanity
From June 6 to August 17 2018
During World War II, Polish resistance hero, Jan Karski was involved in an extremely dangerous mission: In 1942, he travelled across Nazi occupied Europe, to warn Allied leaders about the Holocaust. His journey was planned by the underground Polish resistance movement.
On July 1943, Karski submitted a report to U.S. President Roosevelt about the situation in occupied Poland and the atrocities committed against the Jews. This temporary exhibit tells Jan Karski’s story, as well as the details of his mission.
