Death of Zygielbojm (Śmierć Zygielbojma)

Death of Zygielbojm

In May 1943, Szmul Zygielbojm, a member of the Polish government-in-exile, commits suicide in London. His action leads young British journalist Adam to follow the coroner’s investigation, revealing the significance of Zygielbojm’s mission in Great Britain: to convince the indifferent Allies to intervene in the Holocaust being perpetrated by Nazi Germany in Europe. An account of a true historical tragedy, The Death of Zygielbojm is a timely reminder that we must always take evil seriously – and act against it.
