Summary "The truth about Auschwitz was the most guarded secret of the architects of the ‘Final Solution’. Only five prisoners ever succeeded in escaping to reveal the real purpose of the concentration camp and to survive the war to tell their stories. Two young Slovaks, Rudolf Vrba and his friend Alfred Wetzler were the first to successfully tell the world about the atrocities of Auschwitz. The account they give to the Jewish authorities - in forensic and authoritative detail, was the first to reach the free world and historians have no doubt that it was the most important. Escape from Auschwitz uncovers the true story behind Vrba and Wetzler's dramatic escape and how they told the Allies the truth about Auschwitz. " -- website
