Chapter Excerpt

"In the words of James Russell Lowell's rousing hymn: 'Once to every man and nation, comes the moment to decide, in the strife of truth with falsehood, for the good or evil side.' Perhaps more than most of us, Jan Karski faced such a choice in the starkest of possible terms, and made his decision as courageously as one could.... Jan Karski was a patriot and a truth teller; may his words always be read and his legacy never forgotten." -- from the Foreword by Madeleine Albright
