Video of Wladyslaw Zaroffe Talking About a Karski Visit to his Home in 1940

Wladyslaw Zaroffe as a young man Wladyslaw Zaroffe as a young man

This gives the viewer some historical context about the early years of the war, and about a visit that Jan Karski made to Wladyslaw Zaroffe's home in 1940. Karski was in the Polish Underground, and Wladyslaw Zaroffe's family opened their home to shelter Underground members. Karski came to Nowy Sacz in order to contact the Zwiazek Walki Zbrojnej (Union of Armed Struggle).
