In 1940 a Polish underground operative named Witold Pilecki accepted a mission like no other - to uncover the truth about the thousands of people being imprisoned at a new concentration camp - Auschwitz.
Once inside he was to report on the crimes being committed and raise a resistance army. Using previously unpublished family papers, archival documents and exclusive interviews with surviving resistance fighters, Fairweather sets out in extraordinary detail what Witold managed to achieve, bringing the tale to life despite it laying all but forgotten for decades. This incredible story of self sacrifice and resistance in the face of evil is an absolute must read.
