Escape From Auschwitz by Andrey Pogozhev

On 6 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 1941 and was sent to Auschwitz. The fact that Pogozhev survived the appalling conditions in the camp is remarkable in itself. That he should also have taken part in one of the few successful escapes makes his gripping 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, is unforgettable reading.

Even if you've read numerous books written by survivors of Auschwitz, you'll find this one written by a Solviet POW escape, who witnessed atrocities that were only vaguely referred to in other books. I highly recommend this book.

This was an excellent book that depicted the horrors of the concentration camp. I couldn't put it down.
