    A fascinating, emotionally charged tale of the horrors, sorrows and anguish experienced by Denis Avey s and his time in World War II, being captured by the Germans and the difference between the POW s and the Jews in Auschwitz The story starts before the war and goes through all the experiences from training for the war, fight, being a prisoner and life afterwards He talks not only about the problems, but the friendships he made One in particular was a friendship he made with one of the Jewish prisoner he also told how not once but twice they swapped places and he was able to experience how the Germans treated the Jews while his friend got a chance to sleep and eat a little better for a change This book really gives you an insight into War, Prisoner of War Camps as well as the Concentration Extermination Camps and what is known as a Death March No...

    I m in two minds about this book On one hand it s a very sad, bleak but honest description of the horrors of war and the horrible suffering of the victims of the Nazi regime On the other it s the biography of a man who really doesn t seem very likeable.The Holocaust and other atrocities committed by the Axis powers as well as some Allied actions are some of the darkest blights in mankind s history For those who went through it their experiences are unimaginable The horror, the misery, the brutality of it all And for the author to have gone through it all and survived I respect him greatly.But respecting someone is not the same as liking them Throughout the book the author takes pains to show how insulated he made himself from his fellow men, from the very first day He also took the route he thought would benefit himself and only himself Every time he escaped he did so by himself He said it was because he didn t want to feel responsible for what happened to anyone else but to me there s almost a touch of cowardice in that sort of sentiment I can t claim to even begin to understand what he was going through but it still doesn t seem right to not help others when you can.The same thing happened when he was in the Auschwitz camp Again he highly insulated himself not even letting people know his real first name which surely couldn t have caused any harm The best thing he did there was helping Ernst and that s the most humane thing he did during the en...

    I read a lot of books listen on WWII and the Holocaust, so this one was of interest to me especially reading about someone who chose to break into Auschwitz I had not read of anyone doing that except for the Boy in the Striped Pajamas but that was unwittingly I enjoyed The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz from beginning to end but just to let you know that the first half of the download focused mainly about his start in the war leading up to his time in the Italian POW camp for the British and then on to the work camp in Auschwitz, where he was right there doing the forced labor with the stripees as they were called These POW prisoners didn t share the same camp sleeping quarters with the Jewish prisoners, and had a smidgen benefits in that they weren t beaten for the pleasure of doing so by the Germans but that was about it Reading about the war of the British troops in the desert sands of Africa, Libya along with Egypt, Italy, was new information for me as much as I read, I still don t know all there is to know about WWII because I only recently began to have an interest an offshoot of reading about the Holocaust This will not only be of interest to those who know facts and figures about this part of WWII, but it I could see it being of significance to those of us who do not, as it was...

    By the time I was half way through this book I had serious concerns it contained a great deal of fiction Too many small details remembered, too many unbelievable events, too much just didn t sit right I went to do some research and was not surprised to learn that the book had caused a fair amount of controversy, mainly for the fact that Avey has apparently given long interviews and never mentioned the swap, and has also all...

    Wauw, wat een indrukwekkend boek Boeken over de 2de wereldoorlog zijn soms zo mooi geschreven dat ik zou moeten weten dat ze geen goede verhalen voor bedtijd zijn maar toch laat ik me er elke keer door vangen.

    What an amazing story Denis Avey A British POW shipped to a camp in Poland as a difficult prisoner found himself mysteriously working alongside prisoners who were even lower down the pecking order at IG Farben and wearing striped pyjamas These pitiful individuals were marched off to a separate camp at the end of each day Avey determined to find out and persuaded Ernst Lobethal to change places with him for 24 hours Avey managed to get a letter through to Ernst sister in Birmingham and asked her via a cryptic message to send the only thing that might possibly be useful Cigarettes To himself Which he was then able to give gradually to Ernst who was able to use them to trade Denis never knew until he was an old man that this single compassionate but wise act had in fact directly led to Ernst surviving the long march out of Auschwitz because he had wisely traded 2 whole packets of the precious cigarettes to have his shoes repaired with thick walking soles Ernst Lobet s five hour testimony has been preserved for posterity by the Shoah foundation and it was this testimony that Denis was finally shown only after his book had been written The book is the powerful testimony of one man who could not forget and, despite his nightmares and w...

    This book is a personal account of a soldier during world war II, and while it focuses on how he was a POW working in the same fields as Jewish prisoners at Auschwitz, it also tells about his time before that, when he was captured by the Afrika corps, when he was wandering around Greece and Italy, and serving in Egypt But the tale of how he switched out with a Jewish prisoner not once but twice, just for a night, is the central draw of the story.I m not really big on history and nonfiction, especially personal tales because there s always the question of how much was made up when there s no one to prove or tell otherwise And if I question it, it makes me question the emotions I felt while reading the story, which I don t have to do in fiction because I know it s not real But there s a different emotion that comes when a story when it s supposed to be true.I m not sure how I felt about the believability aspect of this whole story With t...

    I m sure most of this account is true but as far as the Auschwitz swap is concerned I m afraid I don t believe it Most of the book is full of detail but the Auschwitz swap is covered in a few pages of description most people could write having watched a few films of this awful atrocity.This reads to me like a story of the war career the author wished he d had not the one he actually had Reading this book you would think Mr Avey single handedly won the war and revealed the truth about Auschwitz He is constantly frustrated by the officers and the fact that he isn t one He is desperate to be a hero.The book is flawed and anyone who has actually visited Auschwitz knows that the sign Arbeit Macht Frei work sets you free is actually at the entrance of Auschwitz 1 not Auschwitz 3 where Mr Avey supposedly saw it Maybe the mere idea of breaking into Auschwitz so appalls me that I cannot see the ...
