The man who snuck IN to Auschwitz

This is an awesome story of a British POW from a nearby prison camp who traded places with a Jewish prisoner in Auschwitz, and managed to get the Jew cigarettes, chocolate and a letter from his sister in England.

The Jewish prisoner survived the war, but never saw his benefactor again. But you will see both of them if you read the story and watch the videotapes embedded on the page.

Why any one would want to trade places in Auschwitz with a Jew is amazing...yet in the literature of the Holocaust, there are non-Jews who have risked their lives to understand what Jews are going through. I wonder if he's found he would have a place set aside for him in the Avenue Of The Righteous in Yad Vashem.
