I found this scan of a hierarchical diagram of Poland’s mechanics of government and resistance during the Second World War.  Surely, this was designed to assuage Poland’s allies that its resistance was a capable force against Axis powers.

  1. Hi, my name is Alina and I work for Georgetown University. We are doing a magazine feature article on Jan Karski and I am having a heck of a time tracking down the Polish Underground Infographic you have pictured here. Do you know the source of this image? I am hoping to find a high-res image that we can get permission to use.
    Thank you!
