Jan Karski: Hero, Rescuer, Resistor
SEPTEMBER 29, 2014
I have been privileged to meet men and women of distinction, of great integrity and high moral character, and yet, we have only met one person whom we could truly call noble: Jan Karski. Karski was the Messenger. A member of the Polish underground, he brought news to the Polish Government-in-Exile of what was happening in the homeland. He was a genuine Polish hero, a gallant man who struggled for his beloved land and also for the Jews whose voice he became at their most critical moment.
