The incredible untold story of Witold Pilecki, a Polish officer who managed to infiltrate the Auschwitz death camp to smuggle information.
A compilation of all the reports the undercover agent had secretly delivered to London during his internment. Pilecki had a mission in Auschwitz: to create a support and information network. A network of resistance fighters within the death camp. He also had a crazy plan to start an uprising from inside the camp to free the prisoners. As a tragic witness to some of the darkest chapters of human history, and after nearly a thousand days spent in the dark heart of nazi atrocities, Pilecki was the first man to have informed the Allies about the reality of the Holocaust from inside the camp. Here is the story of one of the greatest resistance fighters of the Second World War: Undercover in Auschwitz.
