“Karski My Hero” Website Launched

The Jan Karski Educational Foundation is proud to announce the launching of the long-anticipated project – the new “Karski My Hero” website www.en.karskimyhero.pl, devoted to the places connected with the legendary emissary. The project has been created by our sister organization Fundacja Edukacyjna Jana Karskiego, in Warsaw, Poland, in collaboration with the Jan Karski Educational Foundation. This interactive bilingual portal, a virtual mine of information about Jan Karski, his life and his missions, will help you travel in Karski’s footsteps and dig into the core of the whereabouts of this extraordinary man. You can go chronologically, step by step, or jump from one place on the map to another.

Where did Karski spend his childhood? Where did his work for the Polish Underground take him? What routes did he travel during his perilous missions? Where did he live in the US? Which world cities recognize Karski’s accomplishments and honor his legacy? You can find answers to all these questions and more on this fun website.

Are you ready to take this journey? Ready. Steady. Go. www.en.karskimyhero.pl

The project has received financial support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland.
