“Intensely Impactful” ★★★★– The Guardian
On 10 April, 1944, two Slovak Jews, Alfred Wetzler and Rudolf Vbra, managed to escape Auschwitz, surmounting all odds thanks to meticulous preparations and the cooperation and resilience of their fellow inmates. Equipped with deep knowledge of the way in which the Nazi killing machine operated in the camp, they had a clear mission: to open the world’s eyes to the unimaginable horrors of the Holocaust. Though their wish that the allies bomb the camp never materialised, their detailed report, which became part of the Auschwitz Protocols, helped save the lives of over 100,000 Hungarian Jews. This powerful drama tells a story of incredible courage –to stay alive, and bear witness.
