See this film: The Karski Report @ the HFA

Although Shoah (1985), Claude Lanzmann's monumental account of the Holocaust, was over nine hours long, a lot was left out. For example, the full interview with Jan Karski, the Polish Resistance leader who travelled to Washington to inform President Roosevelt of the ongoing genocide that he had witnessed. To Karski's lasting anguish and incredulity, his testimony did little to change the Allies' laissez-faire policy toward the atrocities. Lanzmann's The Karski Report (2010) presents much more of that harrowing account, and the legendary Lanzmann himself will appear in person for a discussion at the Harvard Film Archive in the Carpenter Center, 24 Quincy St, Cambridge | Friday, March 23 @ 7 pm | $9; $7 students, seniors | 617.495.4700 or
