In 1944, twenty year old, Rudof Vrba, along with Alfred Wetzler escaped Auschwitz and dictated the Vrba-Wetzler Report, or Auschwitz Protocols, to the Bratislava Jewish Council. The report was then smuggled to Switzerland and eventually reached the US State Department, the Vatican and the British embassy in Bern. It was also broadcast on the BBC. As the protocols reached an increasingly large audience, the true purpose of Auschwitz as a death camp became clear to the world. The report, considered by many to be one of the most important documents of the twentieth century, estimated that nearly two million Jews had already been killed. It warned the world that the Germans were preparing to murder 3,000 Czech Jews who had been brought from Theresienstadt six months earlier and nearly 800,000 Hungarian Jews. Originally published in 1964 this astonishing book is now available with a new introduction by the author and includes the full text of the Auschwitz Protocols and other source material.
