Professor Karski was a courier of the Polish Underground in Nazi German-occupied Poland during World War II and was the first credible witness to inform the Allies about the Holocaust when there was still time to act. “We want to shine light on this remarkable man of integrity, action and courage,” said Andrzej Rojek, one of the founding members of the Jan Karski US National Centennial Committee. “We call him 'Humanity's hero.‟
