Photo: Jan Kozielewski (Karski) (1914-2000) was a Polish hero of the resistance against both the Nazi and Communist tyrannies. A Polish diplomat and lieutenant, who escaped the Katyn massacre of Polish military leaders by the Red Army in 1940, he became an expert courier for the underground Polish resistance. One of the missions he undertook was to investigate the extermination of Jews in the Nazi death camps in Poland. After having gathered facts and materials, he embarked on a perilous journey to carry a microfilm containing hundreds of documents to the West in an attempt to warn the allies about the Hollocaust. Anthony Eden, President Roosvelt, Felix Frankfurter, all were inclined to disbelieve his accounts...

The photographs taken in Budapest are the work of Thomas Veres, Raoul Wallenberg's personal photographer. In order to escape detection, many of the photographs were taken by Veres with a camera hidden in his scarf. A tiny hole in the scarf provided access for the camera lens. These secret photographs provide a searing indictment of Nazi brutality. Thomas Veres lives and works today in New York City as a photographer.
