What the papers say:
'This is a most important book, and a timely reminder of the dangers that face any society once intolerance and racism take hold.' -- Sir Martin Gilbert 'This memoir is an important contribution to a terrible chapter in history.' -- Daily Express 'Denis is a hero in time of terror, a man of limitless moral and physical courage.' -- Henry Kamm, New York Times correspondent and Pulitzer Prize winner 'This is the most amazing Holocaust memoir it's been my good fortune to read...this is a beautiful, uplifting book about a real ben adom, a mensch, who saw evil and, instead of averting his eyes, did what he could to help the victims'. -- Washington Jewish Week 'an excellent memoir of survival.' -- Publishers Weekly 'A unique war story from a brave man.' -- Kirkus 'This is the incredible story of British soldier Denis Avey who broke into Auschwitz to uncover the horrors that were concealed there by the Nazis...This is a brutal account of what he experienced. There are some who doubt his story but don't let that ruin this extraordinary book.' -- Press Association 'THE MAN WHO BROKE INTO AUSCHWITZ will take your breath away.' -- La revista de Ana Rosa (Spain) 'What starts as an act of reportage then becomes a moving and ultimately triumphant story of survival.' -- Belfast Telegraph 'Exceptional'. -- Morgenpost (Germany) 'An astonishing heroic tale of a steady character.' -- Judische Zeitung (Germany) 'An admirable story'. -- Periodista digital (Spain) 'A remarkable story'. -- De Telegraaf (Holland) A 'strange, brave and bracing story'. -- Canberra Times
