Witold Pilecki is the extraordinary man who volunteered to go into Auschwitz concentration camp. The Polish resistance wanted to know what was going on in this camp created by the German invaders. Pilecki was asked to get into it and report what was happening there. If possible, he was to organise a revolt. He suffered greatly during his time in Auschwitz but managed to survive and ultimately he escaped. He joined the Warsaw Uprising against the German invaders.
