For many a trip to the dreaded death camps created by the Nazi's in World War II was a death sentence. Many wouldn't live for long after disembarking their train. Others were sentenced to hard labor that would eventually claim them or drive them to take drastic measures and attempt to escape. Most would be brought back, dead or soon to be dead. There are some stories that stand out from the rest. Men who dared to defy one of the most brutal forces in history, the Nazi regime. These men weighted the odds and were determined to do what few managed to do, escape. First we have the story of two men, whose motivation was not only to escape in order to ensure their own survival but the survival of others as well. They were determined to make it out and warn those that might be next for the camps. Would they make it out? Would anyone listen to what they had to say? Read more and find out. The next story is that of not one or two men finding their way out of a camp, but an all-out revolt. After a shocking note lets them know that they are slated for extermination, desperate men resort to desperate measures to try and survive. Can the son of a Rabbi and a former Soviet music major rally enough men to entertain certain death? Will they succeed and at what cost? Learn more about their story and find out if they made it to freedom. There is no doubt that the holocaust was one of the most shameful events in human history. There were triumphs though. Find out what became of these men who were desperate for survival. Comments From Other Readers "Sometimes it is easy to forget the brutality of the Nazis during World War II. The struggle that the Jews went through has been cast in shadow as we move on in time. The camps were a very real thing though. Very few found a way to escape the horror of these concentration camps. This book will help to enlighten the readers about what lengths men will go to in order to save themselves and the lives of others. Excellent story." - Phillip (Washington, United Sates) "This book is based on the true stories of those who were sent to death camps. They could be considered the fortunate few that were allowed to live. The story of those prisoners in Auschwitz who saw the atrocities there day after day saw trainloads of people brought in. It was the rumor that hundreds of thousands of other Jews were to be sent there to die immediately upon arrival that spurred a plan to escape and tell the world what was truly happening. This is a difficult book to read at times but it's a story that needs to be told! I encourage everyone to get this book today and read it!" - Valerie (Texas, United States)
