Summary
September 1940. Polish Army officer Witold Pilecki deliberately walked into a Nazi German street round-up in Warsaw and became Auschwitz Prisoner No. 4859. He had volunteered for a secret undercover mission: smuggle out intelligence about the new German concentration camp, and build a resistance organization among prisoners. Pilecki's clandestine intelligence, received by the Allies in 1941, was among earliest. He escaped in 1943 after accomplishing his mission. Dramatic eyewitness report, written in 1945 for Pilecki's Polish Army superiors, published in English for first time. --amazon.com

Summary
In June 1940, nine months after Nazi Germany invaded Poland to begin World War II, the Germans opened a new concentration camp in southwest Poland near the small town of Oswiecim, which they called Auschwitz. They took over the barracks of a former Polish artillery garrison and emptied the surrounding countryside for fifteen square miles, evicting Polish families from their homes and farms. The Polish Underground wanted to know what the Germans were up to. In September 1940, Polish Army officer Witold Pilecki volunteered for a potentially suicidal secret mission—to get himself arrested by the Germans and sent to Auschwitz as a prisoner.--Publisher
