THE MAN WHO BROKE INTO AUSCHWITZ
Denis Avey, with Rob Broomby
In 1944, British soldier Denis Avey was being held in a POW labour camp, E715, near Auschwitz. He had heard of the brutality meted out to prisoners there and was determined to witness what he could. He smuggled himself into Auschwitz on two occasions and experienced at first-hand the cruelty of the place. Incredibly, he survived, but for decades he couldn’t bring himself to revisit the past, until now. With a foreword by Sir Martin Gilbert.
