The Auschwitz Escape by Joel C. Rosenberg

My rating: 4.8

Everyone knows the horrific story of WWII and the Concentration Camps. This story made me think....what would I do?  When would I be willing to leave my job, abandon my life and flee my country?  If I left it too late by being in denial then, how would I survive in Auschwitz?  Rosenberg brought the atrocities to life for me and this book will haunt me for a long time.  A definite worthwhile read.

The one criticism of this book is some feel that the author has a 'Christian agenda'.  While there are definitely characters with strong religious convictions I felt that it fit in with the horrific sufferings and their faith is what got them through.
