Jan Karski’s astounding and noble bravery comes to light through a mix of documentary footage and animation. Karski, a Polish underground courier, risked his life in a series of visits to the Warsaw Ghetto and a Nazi transit camp so that he could deliver eyewitness accounts of the unfolding Holocaust to the Allied powers. Despite hopes that his findings would awaken the consciences of world leaders in Great Britain and the USA (or as he would call them, “the Lords of Humanity”), his reports fell on deaf ears. But his testimonies are some of the most important accounts we have today – and his efforts stand as an example of heroism in the face of atrocity.
