A real contribution to our understanding of the history of Poland under Nazi occupation. – Antony Polonsky, the Albert Abramson Professor of Holocaust Studies at Brandeis University
The Auschwitz Volunteer: Beyond Bravery is the personal account of Captain Witold Pilecki, a Polish officer who by his own free will chose to enter Auschwitz so that he might relay to the rest of the world the incomparable atrocities taking place in the camp. Despite the immense risks and inherent danger, Pilecki went into the concentration camp so that others might discover the truth. Translated by Jarek Garlinski, The Auschwitz Volunteer is a story of extraordinary bravery in the face of tragedy.
