Remember This

Remember This

Professor Jan Karski’s secret past as a member of the Polish underground was uncovered in 1978 by filmmaker Claude Lanzmann, who included his emotional testimony in Shoah (1985), after 35 years of near-obscurity and silence. Reprising his role from the celebrated one-man stage play, Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck; Nomadland) portray Jan Karski in this genre-defying true story of a reluctant WWII hero and Holocaust witness. 

After surviving the devastation of the Blitzkrieg, Karski swears allegiance to the Polish Underground and risks his life to carry the first eyewitness reports of war-torn Poland to the Western world, and ultimately, the Oval Office. Strathairn captures the complexity and legacy of this self-described ‘insignificant, little man’ whose timely story of moral courage and individual responsibility can still shake the conscience of the world. Shot with a bold black-and-white visual aesthetic, Remember This transforms the original stage production into a captivating and unique cinematic experience.
