Descrizione articolo


In early 1940, Janusz Siedlecki fell into German hands while carrying out a special mission for the Polish Government. He survived interrogation by the Gestapo and, instead of facing a firing squad, he was sent to a concentration camp where he remained for the duration of the war. In this remarkable autobiography, the author remembers his years in Auschwitz and looks back to an idyllic childhood in Poland, where his dreams of meeting a nice girl and settling down to an ordinary life were shattered by the German invasion. The story of his war unfolds with the compelling clarity of an eyewitness account, offering an unparalleled insight into life in occupied Warsaw, and into conditions for Polish prisoners in the Nazi death camps. Eventually, through a combination of luck and an indomitable will, the author survived the worst years of Auschwitz and became an 'old number' - a prisoner with a thorough knowledge of the camp's dangers and dodges. As the war neared its end the inmates were evacuated west then south through five other camps before liberation. But freedom brought many disappointments, and the author was forced to face up to the reality of a Europe in ruins. Finally, he made his way to England and rebuilt his life in Ilkley, which he first visited in Summer 1939 and where he still lives today.
