The Auschwitz Escape is a compilation of everything a person educated in the Holocaust has read and, over the years, been told. If you are familiar with the events, there are no surprises … if you are not, it is a novel based on historical events you should understand and “never forget”.
At approximately fifteen hours of listening, The Auschwitz Escape is just that … an escape from the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland near the end of WWII. It is a novel, although the book refers to several historical individuals of the time. If you are interested in the actual events, there are documentaries and books created by survivors. For example, Night – by Elie Wiesel. Rosenberg indicates the Germans had the resources to send out aircraft to chase down prison escapees – didn’t make sense given it’s so late in the war – 1944. Maybe they did … but it’s a credibility issue to research.
At just under fifteen hours of listening, The Auschwitz Escape was released in 2014 by Brilliance Audio and, narrated by Christopher Lane … Lane is excellent.
Worth the read, the story is based on fact – this horror really happened, and there is proof. The gas chambers and ovens are still there…..
