    schema:reviewBody ""In November 1942, 70 captured Red Army soldiers staged an extraordinary mass escape from Auschwitz. Among these men was prisoner number 1418 Andrey Pogozhev. He survived, and this is his story." "Pogozhev was caught by the Germans in the chaotic retreat of the Red Army in 1941. Along with 20,000 other captured Soviet soldiers he was eventually sent to Auschwitz. A year later, barely 100 were alive. His harrowing account of his experiences adds a new chapter to the history of the horrors of the Nazi concentration camp system. He recalls life and death in the camp in every detail - the sickness and malnutrition, the appalling conditions, and the cruelty that killed all but a handful of his comrades." "The fact that Pogozhev survived in these circumstances is remarkable in itself. That he should also have taken part in one of the few successful escapes from the camp makes his narrative rare indeed. His description of the escape and his subsequent journey as a fugitive to the east, through the Carpathian mountains into the Ukraine and his eventual meeting with the advancing Red army, is unforgettable reading." "Yet Pogozhev's gripping story does not end there. Twenty years later, in 1967 in a Frankfurt courtroom, he was called to give evidence against his former Auschwitz guards."--Jacket." ;
