“ Without the intervention of the Allies, the Jewish community will cease to exist in eighteen months' time.” - Jan Karski

A feature-length partially animated documentary about a man who tried to prevent the Holocaust. The film tells the story of a member of the Polish underground who acted as a courier during World War II and whose 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 Nazi 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 he would later call them – the Lords of Humanity.
