Story of a secret state by Jan Karski( Book )

38 editions published between 1934 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 1,351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first account--by an eyewitness and participant--of Europe's toughest underground state. The Republic carried on under the noses of the Gestapo as a democratic organization, ready for the liberation."--Jacket
The Great Powers & Poland, 1919-1945 : from Versailles to Yalta by Jan Karski( Book )

17 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<Span style=""line-height:13pt""> This definitive study provides a comprehensive diplomatic history of Poland during the most seminal period in its existence, when its destiny lay in the hands of France, Great Britain, and the United States. Although sovereign in principle, Poland was little more than an object of the Great Powers' politics and rapidly changing relationships from the end of WWI to the end of WWII. Enriched by unique anecdotes and archival material, the book ends with Poland's tragic abandonment by the West into the hands of the Soviet Union
Shoah( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a decade in the making, this monumental investigation of the unthinkable: the murder of more than six million Jews by the Nazis. Using no archival footage, Claude Lanzmann instead focuses on first-person testimonies (of survivors and former Nazis, and other witnesses), employing a circular, free-associative method in assembling them. The intellectual yet emotionally overwhelming Shoah is not a film about excavating the past but an intensive portrait in which the past is always present
Mon témoignage devant le monde histoire d'un État clandestin by Jan Karski( Book )

17 editions published between 1948 and 2010 in French and English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J. Karski (1914-2000), membre de la résistance polonaise pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, décrit l'organisation des mouvements de résistance en Pologne et raconte comment en 1942, au péril de sa vie, il pénétra clandestinement dans le ghetto de Varsovie et informa les autorités alliées et les organisations juives sur l'extermination des Juifs menée par les nazis dans son pays

Zygielbojm's death by Dźamila Ankiewicz( Visual )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in Polish and English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Szmul Arthur Zygielbojm was a brilliant Polish Jew, an important member of Warsaw's Jewish Bund in the years leading up to the Nazi occupation. In 1942 he was smuggled to Belgium, New York, and London as the Jewish representative of the Polish Government-in-exile. His mission was to inform those governments of the Nazi horrors in Poland. His extensive efforts to influence high ranking members of each government were futile. Frustrated, he considered his efforts a failure. On May 12, 1943, one day after the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising ended, Zygielbojm committed suicide to shock the world out of its indifference. This tragic story is related by Zygielbojm's brother Reuven, who travels to today's Warsaw and London exploring the facts of Zygielbojm's life and the significance of his death. Among those interviewed are Jan Karski, the famous "Messenger from Poland", and Marek Edelman, the doctor who organized the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. "The production uses stills, archival footage, as well as contemporary video to present the story. All are of very good to excellent quality." MC Journal; The Journal of Academic Media Librarianship
Wielkie mocarstwa wobec Polski 1919-1945 : od Wersalu do Jałty by Jan Karski( Book )

Tajne państwo : opowieść o polskim podziemiu by Jan Karski( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in Polish and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karski was a young diplomat when war broke out in 1939 with Hitler's invasion of Poland. Taken prisoner by the Soviet Red Army, which had simultaneously invaded from the East, Karski narrowly escaped the subsequent Katyn Forest Massacre. He became a member of the Polish Underground, the most significant resistance movement in occupied Europe, acting as a liaison and courier between the Underground and the Polish government-in-exile. He was twice smuggled into the Warsaw Ghetto, and entered the Nazi's Izbica transit camp disguised as a guard, witnessing first-hand the horrors of the Holocaust
Shoah by Claude Lanzmann( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The number of people that lived through the Second World War and the Holocaust dwindles significantly every day. Shoah--a Hebrew word variously translated as annihilation, cataclysm, chaos, or catastrophe--approached the tragedy of the Holocaust in a new and novel way: no archival footage, no newsreels, no black and white still photographs. There are instead interviews with ordinary people speaking in ordinary voices of days that had become ordinary to them: Jewish survivors, former Nazis, Polish peasants, American scholars, and others. Each person describes details which are woven together to present a Holocaust much larger and much more complicated than a viewer could begin to imagine. It is not a documentary, not journalism, not propaganda, not political. It is an act of witness

Karski and the Lords of Humanity( Visual )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and Polish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karski & The Lords of Humanity is a feature-length partially animated documentary project. The film tells the story of a member of the Polish underground who acted as a courier during World War II and whose most prominent mission was to inform the Allied powers of Nazi crimes against the Jews of Europe in an effort to prevent the Holocaust. Jan Karski infiltrated the Warsaw Ghetto and a Transit Camp and carried his dreadful eye-witness report of the atrocities to Britain and the United States, hoping that it would shake the conscience of the powerful leaders or - as Karski would call them - the Lords of Humanity
Historia de un Estado clandestino by Jan Karski( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tras la invasión alemana de Polonia, el gobierno polaco se instala en el exilio. El joven Jan Kozielewski (Jan Karski) recibe la importante misión de hacer de correo entre este gobierno y la resistencia interior. Comienza así una trepidante historia de espionaje, detenciones, lealtad y camaradería que le llevará a recorrer Europa en plena guerra, y que termina con una sorprendente visita al gueto de Varsovia y el descubrimiento, al entrar clandestinamente en un campo de concentración, de la existencia del terrible plan de asesinato sistemático del pueblo judío; un plan que él mismo se encargaría de denunciar por primera vez al mundo ante oídos incrédulos. El libro, escrito por su autor sólo un año después de sus extraordinarias aventuras, recoge, con una enorme capacidad narrativa, todos los detalles e historias que le sobrevinieron. En palabras del propio Karski: El autor no cuenta más que lo que él mismo ha vivido, visto y escuchado
