The critically-acclaimed play, Remember This: The Lesson of Jan Karski, co-written by Clark Young and Derek Goldman and directed by Derek Goldman is returning to Georgetown University. 

In a tour-de-force solo performance, Academy Award nominee David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck; LincolnNomadland) portrays World War II hero and Holocaust witness Jan Karski, a messenger of truth who risked his life to carry his harrowing report from war-torn Poland to the White House, only to be disbelieved. Standing tall in the halls of power, Strathairn captures the remarkable life of this self-described “insignificant, little man,” whose forgotten story of moral courage can still shake the conscience of the world.
