"I've been trying to live my life so that in the hour of my death I would rather feel joy, than fear." (Witold Pilecki)

Don鈥檛 forget Jan Karski another Polish officer who went in to the Warsaw ghetto several times. Witold was an extraordinary human being to do what he did.
 
Imagine going through all that....VOLUNTARILY....and surviving....only to be executed by a different regime only a few years later.
 
 
Przyznam szczerze ze nie spodziewa艂em sie wyr贸偶nienia Pileckiego z tego zrodla.

How incredibly brave he was and to escape only to be later executed by the Russians. So awful. Never forget 馃挃

Sabaton History Channel episode about Witold Pilecki with historian Indy Neidell (Great War & WW2 In Real Time - YouTube) and Sabaton vocalist/lyricist Joakim Brod茅n youtu.be/R_6ARLOgsbA

Interestingly... Pilecki is not recognized by @HolocaustMuseum nor Yad Vashem. He is listed as a Jewish fighter in many jewish publications... For those more curious, check how he died and who were his murderers... twitter.com/michaltyrpa/st鈥
 
In reply to @WorldJewishCong
I am aware of another attempt, which ended tragically. The man was segregated into gas chambers instead to the barracks...
 
In reply to @WorldJewishCong
Then he was murdered by the Soviets.
 
In reply to @WorldJewishCong
Thank you for remembering him.
 
In reply to @WorldJewishCong
Wow just wow a true hero
 
In reply to @WorldJewishCong
Why did the Soviets arrest and execute him?
 
In reply to @WorldJewishCong
What an incredibly brave man.
 
In reply to @WorldJewishCong
Oh yes, I've heard of this brave man before. If only the allies believed his reports, thousands of lives could be saved.
 
 
In reply to @WorldJewishCong
His name will live for evermore. Never forget and do not allow a repetition of the demonisation of human beings. Ever.
 
馃嚨馃嚤One of the bravest people who ever lived

I hope he was recognized as one of the righteous- he certainly was

Having the spiritual strength (soul), to have the emotional strength to feel, promoting clear thinking and the courage to DO the right thing. Thank you, Sir.

In reply to @WorldJewishCong
Actually Pilecki kept on trying to aid the ignorant London Embassy, and he never knew who his real friends were. That is why his madness drove him into espionage against his fellow soldiers and he was executed, not by Soviets but by Polish fellow soldiers. pic.twitter.com/UTl3xVXLde
 
 
Okei... #WitoldPilecki meni vastarintaliikkeen vapaaehtoisena Auschwitziin vangiksi tiedustelemaan. Kesti siell盲 3 vuotta. Selvisi natseista, pakeni, raportoi. Kommunistit vangitsivat.
Teloitettiin 1948. #Auschwitz75
 
This is a hero. May we never forget.
 
 
Roberto Alvim, n贸s n茫o esquecemos.
@jairbolsonaro @fabiowoficial esperamos atitude en茅rgica neste caso!
 
An Auschwitz volunteer
 
Truly the bravest of just about anyone!
 
This is an amazing story of bravery
 
 
 
 
I would like to think modern humans are still capable of such courage. I worry that we鈥檙e not.
 
Dit noem ik nou een held 馃憞
 
This is amazing story. Impossible to summarise. Just watch.
 
I was given a book that tells his story and it was incredible! I never knew any of that and his actions are beyond heroic. Go get the book! #hero
 
As with so many heroes of the anti-Nazi resistance, he was executed by the Soviets after the war. #weremember #Shoah

What a courage. Witold Pilecki had earned a deserved, long-standing, happy life after this heroic act. But it should not happen. I am so sorry. My deepest respect.
 
It seems like all of us should know this man and his story.
 
 
Here is a person of immense courage.

What an amazing brave young man...

Es gab Menschen, die hinsahen, sich selbst aufopfernd, daf眉r sorgen wollten, dass niemand mehr wegsehen kann. Das Vorhandensein dieses Widerstands r眉hrt mich. Warum hat das nicht gereicht?
 
Bravery beyond measure
 
Stunning on so many levels.
 
 
Currently reading The Volunteer. Incredible story
 
If you watch one video today, watch this.
 
 
 
Sometimes moral courage is incomprehensible to those without it. May the morally courageous always appear whenever and where ever they are called...
 
A Hero!
There is no greater love than to give up ones life for another.
We repent as Christians for the deceit, cowardice and hypocrisy of the Church
that supped with the Murderers of the Innocent.

Sie kennen die Geschichte schlecht, fuer manche endete Stalinismus genauso wie Faschismus
 
 
Survived the Nazis, got executed by the Communists.
All you need to know about Comrades.
