Jan Karski Holocaust Memorial Event – Wednesday 29th January

Jan Karski Memorial Event copy2

During World War II, Jan Karski served as a courier for the Polish Underground State and for the Polish government-in-exile. His responsibility was to inform the authorities in the West, including the U.S. President, about the situation in German-occupied Poland and he was one of the first to notify the world about the extermination of the Jews. In 2014, we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth.

The evening, on Wednesday 29th January 2013 at 7:00 pm, will include readings from Holocaust poetry as well from Jan Karski’s individual story and music from the camps.

Venue: Central Synagogue

RSVP to the Synagogue Office 02075801355 or raquel@centralsynagogue.org.uk  by 24th January.
