Karski & the Lords of Humanity

The 17th Hong Kong Jewish Film Festival
Directed by Slawomir Grunberg 72 mins | Poland / Russia / USA | 2015 | Animated Documentary / Documentary | English

This partially animated documentary film tells the story of Jan Karski, Polish diplomat and resistance fighter, who risked his life trying to prevent the Holocaust.

Karski relayed his eyewitness accounts of atrocities to the Allies in the hope of galvanizing them into action, attempting to prevent the annihilation of Europe’s Jewish population. Using archival photographs and footage, animation and interviews with subjects and Holocaust scholars, Grunberg portrays the life and work of a Righteous Gentile and an unsung hero.
