In this gripping and profoundly honest memoir, British World War II veteran Denis Avey recounts how he investigated for himself the horror stories about Jews in German prison camps. A POW in a labor camp near Buna-Monowitz, or Auschwitz III, Avey swapped places with another inmate and smuggled himself into the Jewish sector of the camp. After more than 60 years, he is finally able to revisit what he witnessed.
"This is the most amazing Holocaust memoir it's been my good fortune to read.... This is a beautiful, uplifting book about a real ben adom, a mensch, who saw evil and, instead of averting his eyes, did what he could to help the victims. Don't miss it."—Washington Jewish Week
