It was not an easy book to read, the content however was such that this book was an historical record, it was simple and did not try to distort facts, the suffering of those incarcerated cannot be forgotten and as such this record of the past should be read by this generation and future generations in the hope that such atrocities never occur again. Thank you Captain Witold, God Bless
I am the first to admit that I am not an avid reader, however this true story is written in such a way as to maintain ones interest from start to finish. Cpt Witold Pilecki was one of those few people who step up when required, without the slightest regard to their own safety, showing bravery beyond comprehension! this book provides a lot of details about both the German occupation of Poland and the inner workings of Auschwitz! this book is a must read for anyone studying the Holocaust or WW2 history.
Must read for anyone who wants to know the reality of Auschwitz. Easy to read as it is a report/memoire of his 2 yrs in the camp. The book is the report of the author, who volunteered to Auschwitz to write it. It was the second report about Shoah delivered to the Allies in 1943. The first one was by another Polish hero - Undeground Army (Polish resistance) courier Jan Karski in 1942.
