WITNESS TO TERROR
Visiting Auschwitz today as a is a profound experience. How brave is a man to swap places with an Auschwitz inmate so that he could find out for himself what was going on in the Nazi death camp and tell the world. Denis Avey is just such a man. While a prisoner of war in Poland he arranged to swap clothes with a Jewish prisoner and stayed in the camp on two nights. He saw for himself the "hell on earth" that was Auschwitz and the cigarettes he smuggled in saved at least one life. Hear his amazing story on the BBC iplayer.
