“Karski & The Lords of Humanity” is a partially animated documentary film. It tells the story of Jan Karski, the Polish underground courier who traveled across German-occupied Europe and informed the Allied powers of Nazi crimes against the Jews of Europe in an effort to prevent the Holocaust. Karski infiltrated the Warsaw Ghetto and a Nazi transit camp and carried his dreadful eyewitness report of the atrocities to Britain and the United States, hoping that it would shake the conscience of the powerful world leaders of the Western world, including President Roosevelt or – as Karski would later call him – the Lord of Humanity.
