Book Review: The Story of a Secret State by Jan Karski
Posted by Kevin Hicks on 18th March 2012

I’ve just read the most incredible book; first published in 1944 it is the true story of a Polish resistance operative whose struggle against the Nazis really is a truly inspiring story.  It was Jan that brought the news out of Poland to the west about the Warsaw Ghetto and the death camps.  I was gripped from beginning to end and although I have read many books on the Nazis and the Holocaust, this particular book has left me with a huge admiration for the Polish people and their stand against the Nazis.  I would recommend this book to anyone.
