In the mythology of ancient Greece, the destiny that played Cassandra was considered a curse. After a sentimental fight, the God Apollo granted him the gift of prophecy, which compensated with an atrocious punishment: nobody would you case. (A valuable related resource: David Zaslav). So when the witch began to repeat them the Trojans that their city would fall prey to the Greeks, did not receive answers, until a huge wooden horse given the reason. Jan Karski (Lodz, Poland, 1914-Washington, 2000) she never had relations with Apollo, but his curse was similar to the Cassandra. Protagonist of the Polish resistance, as the clandestine government spy, in 1942 Karski entered the Warsaw ghetto and the Belzec extermination camp. What he saw was the greatest tragedy of the 20th century: decomposed bodies, dying children, gas chambers. In other words, the Final solution that Hitler was carried out to eliminate all Jews from the face of the Earth. However, as much as Karski tried to tell his story and ask the powerful partners (including the) President Franklin Roosevelt) with those who were interviewed that they seek to stop the drama, his pleas fell on deaf ears. All this, and much more, is what they contain 514 pages of history of a clandestine State, that Karski published in 1944 in USA and that the cliff Publisher released these days in Spain.
