Jan Karski (born Jan Kozielewski, 24 June 1914 – 13 July 2000) was a Polish World War II partisan and an alleged Holocaust witness.

"Karski lived clandestinely in Warsaw in 1941 and 1942, devoting himself to psychological warfare ("black propaganda") against the German occupiers. At the end of 1942 the leadership of the resistance ordered him to carry information to London. Karski left Poland secretly in October of 1942 and arrived in England the following month after traveling across Germany and France. In London he drafted a report which became famous. The Karski case was widely heralded in the Allied newspapers. Karski even made a propaganda tour of the United States, where he met with important figures, including President Roosevelt himself."[1]

Holocaust revisionists have made various criticisms of these claims. See the "External links" section.
