No one in his right mind would want to break into a Nazi concentration camp during World War II, no one, that is, who wanted to survive instead of being slowly starved and worked to death. Mr. Avery, however, was different. Captured by the German army in Italy during the Allied invasion in 1945, Avery was incarcerated in a POW labor camp near Auschwitz III. Overwhelmed with a passionate interest that surpassed impending death in order to witness evil, Avery hatched a scheme to swap places with a Jewish inmate named Hans. He spent two nights there on two separate occasions and experienced first-hand the cruelty and nightmarish horror of the infamous death camp.
Amazingly, he survived, although it took him decades to express his feelings about the terrors that haunted his dreams. This recollection is a first rate retelling of one of the darkest eras in recent history.
