Jan Karski Conference

Document Type


Publication Date



Jan Karski has been the subject of historical and memorial inquiry, as we have heard so far in this conference. He has also been the subject of different kinds of literary and visual representation, such as documentary film and television, and fiction of various kinds, including a graphic novel. I will discuss the different uses and interpretations made of the figure of Karski in these varied genres, as well as the conflicts that occur, sometimes explicitly, between them.


This presentation was given at the Jan Karski Memory and Responsibility Conference, September 19-21, 2014.
