About the Author

Alfréd Wetzler (1918-1988) was one of the two inmates of Auschwitz who managed to escape from the death camp using an ingenious scheme to provide the first documentary evidence of the operations at Auschwitz. Once he returned to Slovakia, he joined the national partisan movement under the name of Jozef Lanik. The original book (written in Slovakian) was published under this pseudonym.

Reviews

"...a compelling read; a real thriller. It provides very vivid descriptions of daily life in the camp and recounts in details the miraculous escape and the escapees' subsequent struggle to convince the unbelieving world of the happenings in Auschwitz-Birkenau." - British Czech and Slovak Review

"The writing style is direct, with vivid descriptions of harrowing experiences and soul-searching conversations. In these manners, it is akin to Elie Wiesel's Night". - Jewish Culture and History
