There was only one man in the history of the world who voluntarily went to Nazi German Concentration Camp in Auschwitz, then organised a resistance movement there, and later managed to escape from the camp by his own efforts. His name was Witold Pilecki.
On the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the birth of Captain Witold Pilecki, Onet.pl journalists, under the patronage of the Pilecki Institute and the Auschwitz Museum, created a unique multimedia report “Pilecki”, devoted to the Polish resistance Hero.
The project was created as a result of the cooperation of journalists, historians, cameramen, graphic designers and IT specialists, who joined forces to present the extraordinary life and achievements of Witold Pilecki in a modern, multimedia version. The authors of the report are the following Onet journalists: Mateusz Baczyński, Katarzyna Barczyk-Sikora, Przemysław Mosur-Darowski, Daniel Olczykowski, Szymon Piegza, Janusz Schwertner, Kamil Turecki and Marcin Wywał.
As Bartosz Węglarczyk, editor-in-chief and program director of Onet says – “The multimedia report on Captain Pilecki is the perfect fulfillment of Onet’s journalistic mission. Captain is a very important figure in the history of Poland and the world. We wanted to present it in an attractive way both to the young generation of Poles and to readers abroad”.
The report is available in three language versions: Polish, English and German, in order to reach a wider audience and bring the character of the Polish hero closer to also abroad recipients.
