Everyone should know about the great hero of Auschwitz, RUDI VRBA, who was the first escapee. He and another Jewish prisoner escaped and made their way to Hungary, to warn the Jewish leaders there about the extermination camps and to urge them to resist the impending deportations. The head of the Hungarian Jewish leadership, Eric Kastner, used the information to get his own family and friends out, but did not inform the Jews of Hungary, who were shipped off to the death camps. Vrba wrote a book about it, the original title was “I Cannot Forgive” and then it was republished, I think as “I Escaped Auschwitz”. A great book, a great man, who was never welcomed or honored in Israel.
