Story of a Secret State: My Report to the World (Penguin Modern Classics) review ½ 0 Jan Karski à 0 free read download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook à Jan Karski Estament of survival' Ben Macintyre 'Karski's adventures are worthy of the wildest spy thriller' Daily Telegraph 'This eye witness testimony is imbued with a passion that subseuent memoirs can rarely match' Financial Times 'Deeply moving' Daily Mail 'Reads like the screenplay to an incredibly exciting war movie but it is all true' Andrew Rober. I have heard stories of the deprivations and depravities incurred on the Jews in Poland during WW2 but rarely as such moving first hand testimony Indeed my own father in law was escaping on a train crossing the Polish German border on the very night that Karski was conscripted Karski s remarkable account must be read in the knowledge that the war was still underway when published For this understandable reason there are important facts and events missing some of which are helpfully appended to this edition I was deeply moved by his account not least his ability to report with evident feeling and passion yet remain absolutely objective when faced with sights so appalling His description of the loading of death camp cattle trucks with 140 souls in each and the subseuent carnage is something that I will never forget He clearly understood that objective personal testimony not raw emotion was vital in ensuring his credibilityKarski s account finishes rather abruptly with the delivery of his message to the Allies Being the consummate diplomat he plays down or simply does not report the pitiful responses from the Western leaders to the plight of the Polish people and the Jews in particular For example during his 1943 interview in Washington with Justice of the US Supreme Court Frankfurter himself Jewish he was told Mr Karski I want to be totally frank I am unable to believe you I did not say you are lying I am just unable to believe what you told meJan Karski was honoured as a Righteous among the Nations at Yad Vashem on 2nd June 1982This book sold 400000 copies in the US alone when published there in 1944 It is remarkable that it has not been published in the UK until nowA remarkable story told by a remarkable man

No one had told me about Karski s book and I am surprised it isn t better known For one thing it sheds some light on the circumstances in which news of the atrocities perpetrated against European Jews was conveyed from wartime Poland to unbelievers in London and Washington For another although it was dictated in Polish and translated into English at great speed in a Manhattan hotel room it is well constructed and beautifully written as good in its own way as such 1930s and 1940s classics as Orwell s Homage to Catalonia and Koestler s Scum of the Earth Primo Levi s If this is a man Karski was an officer in the Polish Army in 1939 and he entered the underground where whatever he tells you about his own prudence he proved to be stubbornly and ridiculously courageous He took charge of propaganda at his instigation Poles got to read uncensored news compiled in cellars from radio reports and printed on hand cranked presses Karski is a literalist a patriot and a consummate observer He was told by his underground superiors to be objective and so he proved to beWhat could seem detached or even cold in other easier contexts is the way he is able to make sense of ultimate atrocity He dresses as a Ukrainian guard to observe the killing of trainloads of Jews in uicklime and he notes not his own distress but the prostration as a conseuence of nausea that he experiencedHis dispatch describing this event was read out on the BBC by the writer Arthur Koestler Karski was the first person to witness the genocide and speak about it He doesn t tell you what he felt in Washington but those interested should look at Claude Lanzmann s filmed interview The Karski Report in which he describes how the Supreme Court judge Felix Frankfurter told him that he didn t think Karski was lying but nonetheless couldn t believe him There are books that you are told you must read because they are great literature Karski s is among those which one must read not merely because they told the truth but because they remind the reader that it is possible to do so and that maybe not in the way that one might have hoped or expected telling the truth does make a difference
