Book Review of
The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz
I have had The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz on my amazon wish list since right after it came. A friend who I share books with let me borrow her copy. I am so glad she did. It was such a neat story, and it gave me a different view of World War II as it comes from a British Vet who was in the very beginning of World War II. That part of it reminded me a lot of The Dog Who Could Fly.
The author goes into what happened to him as a prisoner of war. He says that he went in Auschwitz by trading places with a Jew. I know that some people doubt him, but I found the story fascinating.
He does have stories of what he saw in Auschwitz, and I found that to be gripping. He describes it differently then people who lived in it, maybe that is because he knew he was just there for a day and didn’t have to suffer for years.
