The Man who Broke into Auschwitz

 “There wasn’t much I could do but I was tormented by the need to know; to see what I could.”the-man-who-broke-into-auschwitz

We hear many accounts of the Holocaust and World War II however, it is extremely rare to hear of a British POW breaking into a concentration camp and risking his life through a desire to now how innocent people were being treated. Denis Avey did just that. He courageously swapped roles with Hans, a Jewish prisoner in Auschwitz III, and spent 2 nights overall in what can only be described as a ‘living hell’. 

This truly amazing account shows the hardships that the prisoners had to face for years and also the torture of memories once the awful camps were liberated.
