Escape from Auschwitz: Rudolf Vrba and Alfréd Wetzler, two Jewish prisoners in Auschwitz, manage to escape with help of the camp underground and the Polish resistance.

In a few days they will dictate to Jewish officials in Slovakia a 32-page report on what's really been happening to Jews in Auschwitz. Later known as the Vrba-Wetzler report, it provides the Allies with knowledge of what the Nazis are doing to Jews throughout Europe.

In their report, Rudolf Vrba and Alfréd Wetzler provide maps, explain how the camps are organized, describe how Jews are used as slave labor for German industry, and provide details on the mass murder with poison gas.
