The Man Who Volunteered for Auschwitz
Quote:
The Polish resistance had been hearing horrific first- or second-hand accounts about the conditions inside Auschwitz. These early accounts came primarily from released prisoners, but also from casual observers like railway employees and residents of the nearby village of Oswiecim. The resistance decided they needed someone on the inside.

:(

Prisoner number 4859 actually survived the Nazis, only to then have to deal with the commies.

RIP.

I was immediately reminded of the scenarios where people want to believe they'd be the hero but never consider whether or not they'd really be one of the "sheep" or guards.

I'm considering buying the book (except that I keep buying and not reading :)).

Depending on how much accurate info they have, I think it would make an excellent series or mini-series.

Fucking commies and commie sympathizers. Young morons that came of age after the downfall of the Soviet Union have no clue. Socialists need a permanent vacation to Venezuela.

While we are not on the same page politically, I too don't like commies.

Maybe the Koch brothers could sponsor this. Free return trip to Venezuela.

If they'd go, it would be the fastest fundraising event in history.
