The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz by Rob Broomby,Martin Gilbert,Denis Avey



The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz is the title of an autobiographical book by Denis Avey, who is a recipient of a British Hero of the Holocaust award. The book was written together with Rob Broomby and published by Hodder in 2011. It carries a foreword by Sir Martin Gilbert. However, since its publication, the book has become a subject of considerable controversy.

The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz is the extraordinary story of a British soldier who marched willingly into the concentration camp known as Auschwitz III, to testify at first hand the atrocities occurring in the camp. The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz is the extraordinary true story of a British soldier who marched willingly into the concentration camp, Buna-Monowitz, known as Auschwitz III. In the summer of 1944, Denis Avey was being held in a British POW labour camp, E715, near Auschwitz III. He had heard of the brutality meted out to the prisoners there and he was determined to witness what.

But not 'a man who went to Auschwitz And pretended to be a Jewish' cause That's not where it is about, it is about a soldier fighting in world war two who was sent to Auschwitz as a soldier And has to work with the Jewish, not as One. If you want to know more about Auschwitz And how the Jewish survived there, This is not a good book. If you want to read a story about someone helping the jewish, it is an amazing book. The book is the powerful testimony of one man who could not forget and, despite his nightmares and wish to just get on with life, eventually found a way to tell the story. He was tested in the fire and not found wanting". Despite the horror of Avey's war time experiences he tells the story with a light touch and does not miss opportunities for a touch of humour or a story against himself. Avey chose not to look away or cross over the road.

Sir Martin Gilbert 'This memoir is an important contribution to a terrible chapter in history. - Daily Express 'Denis is a hero in time of terror, a man of limitless moral and physical courage. this is a beautiful, uplifting book about a real ben adom, a mensch, who saw evil and, instead of averting his eyes, did what he could to help the victims'  . There are some who doubt his story but don't let that ruin this extraordinary book. - Press Association 'THE MAN WHO BROKE INTO AUSCHWITZ will take your breath away. - La revista de Ana Rosa (Spain) 'What starts as an act of reportage then becomes a moving and ultimately triumphant story of survival. - Belfast Telegraph 'Exceptional'.

The title stole my attention and the book was quite difficult to put down at times, particularly as it got into the nitty gritty of Denis Avey's time as a POW right next to the the Jewish labour/death camp. The volume of lead in to this story, including Mr Avey's early war experiences, was unexpected but very interesting. It was worthwhile reading. The difficulties he experienced once back in civilian life were facinating and provides valuable insight into the human psyche as it relates to the suffering of others - people either didn't believe or didn't want to know. The end of the book contrasted the sensitivity of the old man with the tough 'take no prisoners approach of his younger years and explains wonderfully Mr Avey's search for peace and absolution before the end of his life. The writing style creates tension in some parts but could have been better in others. Still, it did the trick and was never boring. Mr Avey's deliberate actions in witnessing first hand the revulsion of the Nazis' treatment of the Jews sets him apart and his late recognition cements a place for him in history as an unusual hero of WWII. That no one or no thing, including the War Crimes Trubunal, seemed interested in using his evidence defies logic but perhaps not too much should be read into this as it is apparent only by its ommision and there are always two sides to a story. One wonders what follow up, if any, there was into the Nazi war criminals Mr Avey witnessed in action. This book gave me the best close up view of Nazi war crimes against Jews that I have come across and I therefore highly recommend it for anyone who prefers to keep their head out of the sand.

When I first saw the title of this book I thought it was wrong. Who in his right mind would think of breaking into Auschwitz? This is the story of Denis Avey and how during his experience as a British prisoner of war he twice switched places with a Jewish prisoner named Hans to experience the hell of Auschwitz himself. I can't tell you how much I admire the author for doing what he did, although I can't imagine breaking into hell itself. The author also gives a good description of post traumatic stress which he suffered from for years and years. Years ago there was no acknowledgement of pts or help for it either. This is also the first book I have ever read that tells about a group of British prisoners of war who were in a camp right next to Auschwitz working with mostly Jewish prisoners from that camp. A good read and a valuable historical document.

The writer worked as slave labor in the Farben factory at Auschwicz after being captured as a prisoner of war. He worked alongside of inmates of the associated extermination camp and became aware of the appalling conditions under which the Jews and other prisoners lived. He became determined to expose these facts to the rest of the world. In order to get first-hand information he surreptitiously changed places for a night with a Jewish prisoner.
Unfortunately after the war the allied authorities did not want to listen to his testimony so he kept his silence for more than 50 years. But eventually the British government gave him an audience. After his story was verified he was awarded a "Hero of the Holocaust" award.

If you research or are just interested in the holocaust histories then you will want this book. This is written from the totally different view point of a captured British POW. Though not housed in the wretched barracks of the main death camp area of Auschwitz the POW's didn't fair a whole lot better. We all know what happened at these death camps so I won't belabor that. You'll want this book for the front and back stories. Without throwing out a spoiler, it's amazing how something as simple as a pack of cigarettes could make such a huge difference. Brush up on your British slang as this book isn't Americanized. Took me a bit to figure out what was said at times but it in no way detracted from the book. This is a book I will re-read again and again. If Amazon had a 10 star rating system this one would get all 10.

Out standing book.

It took me a while to get into this book - the begining wasn't as riveting as the rest of it, but it really is worth getting past the first section (it gets more interesting when he becomes a POW, basically, even though I know that seems horrible to say/think). His story really is a remarkable one though, and definatley worth reading.
This was an excellent book that I found hard to put down. It gave intimate details of life in the desert and the camps and transported the reader there. It’s amazing that anyone survived those camps. A must read.
