Jan KarskiThe mission of the Jan Karski Educational Foundation is to instill in people - especially youth - the values of leadership, courage and integrity, as exemplified by the life of Jan Karski.

To meet this mission, our tactics include propagating Karski’s legacy with educational activities and public events, such as these initiatives:

  • Promoting Karski’s book Story of a Secret State as a “must-read” in Holocaust, world and European history curriculums at the middle, high school and college levels
  • Advancing interfaith cooperation and exchange, especially between the Catholic and Jewish communities
  • Educating Americans about Polish history – particularly Poland’s contributions to the Allied effort in World War II
