Karski reported the Holocaust but no one believed him

A fragment of the book cover of Jan Karski “Secret State” published in Russian , photo: mat. promotional, ed. Corpus. Jan Karski is known in Poland, but unknown in the rest of the world.  http://www.polskieradio.pl/5/3/Artykul/1002720,-Jan-Karski-Polak-ktory-chcial-powstrzymac-Holokaust
In the midst of World War II, Jan Karski was dispatched by the Polish Underground to inform Western Allies about the reign of terror in German Nazi-occupied Poland and to seek intervention. Karski’s courageous mission, against all odds in the darkest of hours, qualifies him as Humanity’s Hero. http://www.jankarski.net/en

The travelling exhibition, The World Knew: Jan Karski’s Mission for Humanity – created by the Polish History Museum with assistance from the Jan Karski Educational Foundation – opened at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain in June 2014.
