Jonathan Freedland: The Man Who Escaped Auschwitz image

Imagine trying to escape from Auschwitz as a teenager, hiding for three days, while 3,000 SS and their bloodhounds search for you. This is the story of Rudolf Vrba, whose report on the atrocity of Auschwitz reached Roosevelt, Churchill and the Pope, saving hundreds of thousands of Jewish lives. In his unforgettable new book, The Escape Artist, acclaimed journalist Jonathan Freedland recounts Vrba’s heroic mission.
