"In 2010, Claude Lanzmann's film, The Karski Report, was released. It is comprised entirely of an interview with Jan Karski, an official in the Polish resistance during World War II, whose testimony in Shoah (Lanzmann's seminal film from 1985) remains unforgettable. The Karski Report outlines Karski's desperate attempts to convey the unimaginable events to the West from occupied Poland. Did he succeed?

I knew, but didn't believe it and because I didn't believe it, I didn't know goes back to one of the most critical moments in diplomatic history to examine this question." - Ido Govrin (2017)


Claude Lanzmann, Le rapport Karski, documentary film (still), 48 minutes, 2010
