  • "It is 1939. Jan Karski is a brilliant young Polish linguist whose life is one of study, parties and pleasure. Then war breaks out, and suddenly his familiar world is destroyed. Recruited into the Polish resistance as a secret messenger, Karski must learn to forget his old existence. He will experience bravery and cruelty at their most extreme."
  • "Karski was a brilliant 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."

  • "It is 1939. Jan Karski, a brilliant young Polish student enjoys a life of parties and pleasure. Then the war breaks out and his familiar world is destroyed. Now he must live under a new identity, in the resistance. And, in a secret mission that could change the course of the war, he must risk his own life to try and save those of millions."
  • "Jan Karski's Story of a Secret State stands as one of the most poignant and inspiring memoirs of World War II and the Holocaust. With elements of a spy thriller, documenting his experiences in the Polish Underground, and as one of the first accounts of the systematic slaughter of the Jews by the German Nazis, this volume is a remarkable testimony of one man's courage and a nation's struggle for resistance against overwhelming oppression. Karski was a brilliant young diplomat when war broke out in 1939 with Hitler's invasion of Poland. Taken prisoner by the Soviet Red Army, which had simultaneo."@en
  • "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."
