Recently I saw a riveting new play, My Report to the World: The Story of Jan Karski.
In 1943, Karski, a member of the Polish Catholic underground, was the first witness to the Warsaw ghetto and a Nazi concentration camp to reach the US.
He sought to convince Franklin D. Roosevelt and Supreme Court judge Felix Frankfurter that Judaism was being systematically wiped out by the Nazis. Frankfurter told Karski he couldn’t -believe it because the horror was unfathomable.
