Poland's lower house Sejm on Friday declared 2014 a Jan Karski Year to commemorate the birth centenary of the Pole who gave the first eyewitness report on the Holocaust to the Allies.

Karski was born in Poland in 1914. In 1939, he joined the resistance movement. He witnessed firsthand the Nazis' treatment of Jews in ghettos and concentration camps. As an envoy of the London-based Polish government-in-exile, Karski was the first to inform the western Allies about the Nazis' mass extermination of Jews.
