Soldier, 92, breaks silence over Auschwitz heroics - Yahoo! News
Quite a story.
"The difference between right and wrong is fast receding. Awareness is being diluted, people are just saying 'such is life'. People are like this now."
After weeks of preparation, including bribes to a guard, Avey twice swapped uniforms with a Dutch Jew of roughly the same height to sneak into the camp where he spent the night.
On both occasions the men managed to change back into their own clothes, despite the risk of discovery and certain death.
I'm not buying it. Nor the book either.
There is independent verification?
Avey recently discovered that a Jew called Ernst survived Auschwitz and recorded his testimony on video.
In that testimony he talked about a soldier -- Avey -- who arranged for him to get 10 packs of cigarettes from England which he swapped for food and new soles on his shoes without which he said he would not have survived the death march.
