Biography: The Volunteer: The True Story of the Resistance Hero who Infiltrated Auschwitz by Jack Fairweather

Jack Fairweather’s biography tells the story of Witold Pilecki, a Polish resistance leader who was voluntarily imprisoned at Auschwitz in order to collect information and evidence about the Nazis’ horrific actions at the camp during World War II. ” Using myriad sources to paint the pictures of the camp’s horrors, including the prime source, Pilecki’s memoir, which has only recently been translated, Fairweather shines a powerful spotlight on a courageous man and his impressive accomplishments in the face of unspeakable evil,” praises Kirkus in a starred review.
