This is a really sad but good book, we should all read this.

This is the story of Rudolf(Rudy) Vrba and how he and his fellow inmate Fred Wetzler 2 young Slovakian Jews, managed to escape from Auschwitz Concentration camp in 1944
They wanted to tell the World of all the atrocities and total devastation that the Nazis inflicted on the Jewish people.
The World didn't really listen to them though.

This story follows Rudy from his Childhood in the 1930s and all the horrible restrictions that the Jewish people had to endure.
To his time working in these Death camps and how he planned his escape.
Rudy had a near photographic memory and was able to recall how many people were executed.
This book also follows Rudi after the War and through his Career and Personal life.
Very well researched book and makes this horrible event to a new audience.

A fascinating read of a man's escape out of Auschwitz and his life afterwards. Not just an heroic tale but also about a flawed man, warts and all.

A very well written and engrossing book, Holocaust books often are for some reason. This one delivers. It will make an excellent movie, it has all the right elements. Walter Rosenberg is a hero against fascism, we need his inspiration now more than ever.
