A new documentary, directed by Emmy-winner Slawomir Grünberg, spotlighting the efforts of Polish hero Jan Karski to inform the world’s leaders about the Holocaust. A Polish underground courier, Karski traveled across occupied Europe to inform the Allied powers of Nazi crimes, carrying his dreadful eye-witness report to Britain and the United States, hoping that it would shake the conscience of the powerful leaders or – as he would call them – the Lords of Humanity. Karski is the story of a man hovering between life and death while fulfilling a desperate mission. This film explores the biggest tragedy of the 20th century, as reflected in the life of a single individual.
