Allies in Auschwitz
The Untold Story of British POWs Held Captive in the Nazis' Most Infamous Death CampBook - 2009
Based on interviews with some of the few surviving members of E715 Auschwitz, this book charts the British captives' true story--from their arrival on cattle trucks through to their eventual departure on foot. Haunted by what they witnessed as young men, Brian Bishop, Doug Bond, and Arthur Gifford-England were unable to speak about their experiences until decades later when approached during research for this book. In post-war Britain, there has been little interest in these remarkable men, and they have had to cope with the trauma of their experiences with little support.
Allies in Auschwitz records an important and forgotten episode of modern history. As corroboration of the men's testimony, the final chapter includes post-war accounts from other British POWs held in E715 Auschwitz, based on documents compiled by war crimes investigators for the Nuremburg Trials.
