When I first began this book I was some what disappointed. The reader at times can be hard to understand. The book is all so written as an account in some ones life and therefore has had little effort put in to creating a gripping story line. However getting further in to the book I realised what this book really is, a story of one of the bravest and best of the species called human beings. Durring a time when any normal person would have done anything possable not to go and anything else to leave Mr. Pilecki volunteered to go and choose to stay, in order to complete his work. He is the bar in which any man should strive to reach. I feel as I shall try harder to be a stronger better human,man, after listening to this book. I recommened this book highly for a few different reasons but mainly because it has changed my perspective.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Provides a captivating first hand account of time a prisoners life and trials in a concentration camp...all while organizing and eventually escaping the horrible conditions. Only to be murdered after the war was over.

I'm not sure I can call this book good. It's well written but has a terrible content. Perhaps we should all listen to it. I've read a lot of ww2 books but this really made me stop and think, about how fortunate we are compared to these poor people.

Depressing, enlightening and educational, this is perhaps the most thorough first hand account of the treatment suffered by so very many in Auschwitz.
How did this man survive such brutality and murder all around him? I'm not sure, but this account was truly compelling. Depravity and gruesome violence abounds in almost every chapter; it's definitely a hard listen at times, but to think the man survived this travesty of a camp, and for so long, is an incredible feat that must be witnessed with this book.
