Remembering Unsung Heroes Of The Holocaust

Associated Press reported recently on some excavations in Warsaw that have received little interest outside of Poland, especially in the Jewish community.

The work at the Powazki Military Cemetery should be of interest to Jews – the forensic scientists are looking for the remains, in a mass grave that contains entangled skeletons of resistance fighters, of one particular hero. Capt. Witold Pilecki, a non-Jewish Pole, volunteered to be captured and interned in Auschwitz in order to bring the Nazi death camp’s atrocities to the attention of the world.

Witold Pilecki: His burial place isn't known, his heroism is.
