The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz: A True Story of World War II
by Denis Avey with Rob Broomby
The extraordinary story of Denis Avey began in 1944 when he was captured and sent to a POW work camp near the Auschwitz death camp, laboring every day alongside Jewish prisoners. Hearing their horrific stories, Avey's curiosity, kindheartedness, and a touch of derring-do drove him to suggest switching places with two of the Jewish prisoners. Miraculously he managed the switches and spent two harrowing days and nights inside Auschwitz. This is his unforgettable story--a story of generosity, courage, and survival.
