Description

The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz THE MAN WHO BROKE INTO AUSCHWITZ is the extraordinary true story of a British soldier who marched willingly into Buna-Monowitz, the concentration camp known as Auschwitz III.In the summer of 1944, Denis Avey was being held in a POW labour camp, E715, near Auschwitz III. He had heard of the brutality meted out to the prisoners there and he was determined to witness what he could.He hatched a plan to swap places with a Jewish inmate and smuggled himself into his sector of the camp. He spent the night there on two occasions and experienced at first-hand the cruelty of a place where slave workers, had been sentenced to death through labour.Astonishingly, he survived to witness the aftermath of the Death March where thousands of prisoners were murdered by the Nazis as the Soviet Army advanced. After his own long trek right across central Europe he was repatriated to Britain.For decades he couldn't bring himself to revisit the past that haunted his dreams, but now Denis Avey feels able to tell the full story - a tale as gripping as it is moving - which offers us a unique insight into the mind of an ordinary man whose moral and physical courage are almost beyond belief.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end! As a former history student, I have read a number of books about the Holocaust, but there is very little that compares to such a brutal and personal account. It is one of those books, which really makes you value the things you have. Denis Avey is a noble and selfless man, who has done amazing things throughout his life!The fact that he kept this story to himself for so many years is understandable, but also deeply moving and I thank him for having the courage to tell it! It is stories like this which must not be lost! Highly recommended.

    How do we expect a younger generation not to forget if we don't help them remember. A remarkable story well told

    A genuine and extraordinary account of suffering, fortitude and luck. Everyone should read if only to appreciate what horrors can be created within a so called civilised society and how slow the greater good were to recognise and act. How War gives purpose for so much wrong for so much sacrifice and loss. How evil within can manifest itself in an excuse and the routine of a misguided and unquestioning society. Such events must never be forgotten if only to protect a repeat as these horrific times get left behind in history. Thank you
