This is an interesting story that I wasn’t aware of 08:41 - Jan 24 with 389 viewsGlasgowBlue

Witold Pilecki was a Polish cavalry officer, intelligence agent, and resistance leader who deliberately got himself sent to Auschwitz so as to be able to document the atrocities carried out in the camp tell the world what was going on.

Managed to smuggle reports out, eventually escaped, fought in the Warsaw Uprising only to be tortured and shot by the Communists in 1948 on the charges of working for "foreign imperialism" due to him working with british intelligence during the war.

With the 75th anniversary of Auschwitz liberation taking place next week there are many inspiring stories such as this one being published and well worth reading.

Read an interesting article by Michael Rosen the other day about talking to children about the Holocaust, particularly now that the generation who survived it are largely either too frail to be able to recount their stories properly or were too young at the time to have coherent memories.

Personally, I like to recommend that young people read 'Maus' by Art Spiegelman. It's an astonishing piece of work that nearly anyone can read and be moved by. I've lent my copy to people as young as 10 and as old as 75 and they've all been destroyed by it.

Saw Rosen yesterday in Kings Cross area, pointed him out to my wife as the author of "We're going on a best hunt", then had to stop her interrupting him so she could tell him how our youngest offspring memorised it word for word at a young age.

Back to Holocaust memorial, youngest offspring will be attending Lewisham's one this weekend with the Police Cadets.
