Chess and the Polish Underground

'Statue of Jan Karski, a member of the Polish underground who worked to help Polish Jews escape the Nazis and tried to alert the world to the horror of the concentration camps, on the grounds of Georgetown University in Washington, DC. After WWII, Mr. Karski served as a professor at the school.'
