How One Man Tried to Stop the Holocaust
by E. Thomas Wood and Stanislaw M. Jankowski
Working for the Polish Underground, Jan Karski witnessed first hand the horrors of the Holocaust during the early years of World War II. Surviving Soviet captivity and Gestapo torture, he escaped occupied Poland in 1942 and embarked on a heroic crusade to tell about the Nazi extermination of European Jews to allied leaders in London and Washington. His dramatic mission culminated with a private audience in the White House with Franklin D. Roosevelt. Karski is the first definitive account of this little known episode one of the earliest reports of the atrocities to reach the West and perhaps the most significant warning of the Holocaust to come.(320 Pages)
