people went through and does not shy away from the truth This book is not for anyone easily disturbed by violence Happy reading guysretty ballsy move by the Costa Awards to name this book of the year when it s essentially an account of the total incompetence displayed by the Allied owers and especially Britain In 2003 my wife and I visited Krakow Poland as art of a trip to locate where my father s family lived before immigrating to the United States in the 1930s to escape the dark clouds that were descending upon Europe During our visit I hired a driver and spent hours visiting Auschwitz and Birkenau the resting Challenged by Love E-Boxed Set place for many relatives that I never was fortunate enough to meet Seventy five years after the conclusion of World War II numerous uestions abound concerning the then then crown jewel of Hitler s extermination machine Books continue toroliferate but what sets Jack Fairweather s new book THE VOLUNTEER ONE MAN AN UNDERGROUND ARMY AND THE SECRET MISSION TO DESTROY AUSCHWITZ apart is his discovery of the role of Witold Pilecki who volunteered to be imprisoned in Auschwitz in order to organize an underground resistance that would be art of a major revolt against the Germans Pilecki has become a national hero in major revolt against the Germans Pilecki has become a national hero in and his story remained unknown in the west until it was uncovered by historians in the 1960s and 70s Much of his writings were sealed by the Soviet Union after the war because as a Polish nationalist Pilecki was deemed a threat to the state laced on trial and executed by the Stalinist regime It wasn t until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989 and the opening of the state archives in Warsaw that the academic Adam Cyra and Pilecki s 60 year old son Andrzej had access to his father s writings and reports smuggled out of Auschwitz in order to alert the allies as to what was occurring in the crematoria and gas chambers and argue for the west to bomb the campsFairweather asks a number of important uestions from the outset that impinge upon the role of England and the United States as it learned of the extermination camps He carefully develops a number of important themes that reverberate throughout the narrative First despite Pilecki s earnest efforts that included being tortured beaten starved suffering from typhus he was able to employ the Polish underground network to smuggle out the truth as to what was occurring in Auschwitz to underground leaders in Warsaw who were able to convey Robot Programming part of his reports to the Polish government in exile and hence to the Churchill government in 1942 Much of this information was also communicated to the Roosevelt administration in Washington who was much of aolitical animal in deferring any decisions to assist the Jews be it immigration by confronting State Department olicies that was openly anti Semitic under the auspices of Breckinridge Long or approving bombing of the camp Second was the mind set of British oliticians in high circles who suffered from an in bred anti Semitism and saw Pilecki s information as a distraction from the main war effort They would allow the dissemination of some information but would not endorse it As Richard Breitman and David Wyman hav. T army to stage an uprising The name of the detention centre AuschwitzIt was only after arriving at the camp that he started to discover the Nazi’s terrifying designs Over the next two and half years Witold forged an underground army that smuggled evidence of Nazi atrocities to the West culminating in the mass murder of over a million Jews His reports from the camp were to shape the Allies response to the Holocaust yet hi.

E Our Fake Relationship pointed out the British were obsessed by thealestinian issue and they an arab Palestinian and they feared an Arab if they approved further immigration because of their dependence on Middle Eastern oil and the Suez Canal Lastly Fairweather s narrative focuses on Pilecki s attempt to educate the allies and get them to acknowledge the importance of what was occurring at Auschwitz On another level he concentrates on the allied response and the reasons for their deafness when it came to the extermination of European Jewry As he concludes the allied failure to Understand Auschwitz s role as the epicenter of the *holocaust allowing officials to continue to characterize the *allowing officials to continue to characterize the assault on the Jews ASA a diffuse The Blitzkrieg Legend phenomenon that could only be stopped by defeating Germany Downplaying genocide could only inhibit further investigation Much of what Fairweather argues has beenut forth by numerous historians but the key is the The Crown personal story of Witold Pilecki that unfolds Fairweather has written a deeplyersonal Über Nacht portrait of a man whose moral and ethicalrinciples stood out in a deeply troubled Ad Astra period The narrative is based on assiduous research that included interviews with fellow inmates who the author had access thatrovide insights into his character his decision making and the impact of his actions Fairweather traces Pilecki s journey from his uiet family life who survived the Nazi onslaught on his country in September 1939 experiences in Auschwitz his methodology in organizing his underground network strategies for smuggling out information and how he tried to convince his superiors of the importance of destroying Auschwitz as it was a vehicle to exterminate millions of Jews as well as thousands of Polish CatholicsMany of Pilecki s compatriots like Dr Wladyslaw Dering a Warsaw gynecologist who faced the dilemma of how much he should cooperate with the Nazis as he tried to save as many inmates as ossible a Polish spy known as Napoleon and Stefan Rowecki the leader of the Polish underground in Warsaw are introduced as are the kapos like Alois Staller who tortured the inmates the SS Commander Rudolf Hoss who ran the camp among many and of course the victims who suffered unbearably Fairweather resents the unfathomable and grisly details that go along with any discussion of the Holocaust that have appeared in historical accounts since the end of World War II but he delivers them in a concise manner with much sensitivity and at the same time is able to convey to the reader the importance of Pilecki s mission to expose what the Nazis were doing in Auschwitz articularly once the decision for the Final Solution is made in January 1942 at the Wannsee ConferenceIf there is a criticism that can be offered is that at times Fairweather is somewhat cavalier about his information ie his description the Battle of the Bulge as a minor hinderance to the allied drive to end the war Further he should be careful with his statistics stating that there were 2000000 Jews under Nazi control in Poland the 3300000 would be accurateOverall Fairweather has written an important book because he uncovers the role of an important figure who did his best to alarm the world as to what was the end goal of Hitler s racial war The fact that Witold Pilecki was kept hidden for so long is the result of another type of extermination Stalin s effort to eradicate any Pole who might have been given any credit for liberating their country Kudos to Fairweather for bringing Pilecki s story to the fore The Volunteer A Gripping Story of ResistanceTo many of us in the Polish community the story of Witold Pilecki is a very well known story of resistance and hero This is the story of Witold Pilecki which remained lost for many years after the conclusion of WWII Pilecki was a member of the Polish resistance who volunteered to get arrested and sent to Auschwitz before anyone not even the Germans knew what Auschwitz was to become It recounts his years there organizing an underground and trying to alert the world then recounts his return to Warsaw to fight the Germans in their final stand in Poland only to see the Soviets stroll in afterwards to install a communist governmentHis years in Auschwitz were spent futilely trying to get anyone especially England and the USA to recognize what was happening there and to take action It s a remarkable story about a man who gave up everything to try to rescue Poland from the madness only to see his efforts time and again get ignored by those who could have done something about it It s heartbreaking in so many ways Although it feels like events of the Holocaust and WWII have been comprehensively written about in numerous accounts it s astounding that new stories continue to emerge which resent a different angle on this complex history Virtually unknown accounts of heroism and tragic defeat continue to emerge and this new biographical account of Polish officer Witold Pilecki is one of the most shocking and heart breaking I ve ever read After Poland was occupied and Auschwitz a former Polish army barracks was turned into a German Sport Social Work: Promoting the Functioning and Well-Being of College and Professional Athletes prisoner of war camp Pilecki and other Polish nationalists devised campaigns to resist their invaders and take back their country One of the things they needed most was information to convey to what would. S story was all but forgotten for decadesThis is the first major account of his amazing journey drawing on exclusive familyapers and recently declassified files as well as unpublished accounts from the camp’s fighters to show how he saved hundreds of thousands of livesThe result is a enthralling story of resistance and heroism against the most horrific circumstances and one man’s attempt to change the course of histor.
