Escape from Auschwitz
Season 7 Episode 2 | 53m 50s
Nazi records show that tens of thousands of Jews from German-occupied territories were sent to Auschwitz to be executed each month. But two Auschwitz prisoners, Rudolph Vrba and Alfred Wetzler, were determined to expose the horrors of the Nazi genocide and stop the killing factories forever. To do that, they had to become the first to escape from the heavily-guarded camp.
