Er ging freiwillig, und er konnte fliehen: Witold Pilecki begab sich absichtlich als Häftling ins KZ Auschwitz. Sein Ziel: Informationen über die Vorgänge im Konzentrationslager nach draußen zu schmuggeln und im Lager eine Widerstandsorganisation unter den KZ-Insassen aufzubauen. Witold Pilecki schrieb einen Bericht, der den Lauf der Geschichte hätte ändern können. Doch die Alliierten glaubten, dass Pilecki übertrieben hatte, und lehnten eine Befreiung des KZ Auschwitz ab. Ein unglaubliches Dokument des Muts und des menschlichen Widerstandswillens

The Auschwitz volunteer beyond bravery by Witold Pilecki( Recording )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
September 1940. With calm deliberation, Polish Army officer Witold Pilecki walked into a Nazi German street round-up in Warsaw, and became Auschwitz Prisoner No. 4859. Pilecki had volunteered for a potentially suicidal secret undercover mission for the Polish Underground: smuggle out intelligence about this new German concentration camp, and build a resistance organization among the prisoners. Barely surviving nearly three years of hunger, disease and brutality, Pilecki accomplished his mission before escaping in April 1943. His clandestine intelligence reports from Auschwitz, received by the Allies beginning in 1941, were among the earliest, including the full horrors of daily life inside the camp, the killing of Soviet soldiers taken as prisoners of war, the building of the gas chambers and mass extermination of the Jews brought to the camp
