    Thumbs up Soldier, 92, breaks silence over Auschwitz heroics

    LONDON (Reuters) It took him more than 60 years to break his silence, but in a new book 92-year-old Denis Avey tells the story of how he broke into Auschwitz concentration camp twice to witness for himself the horrors of the Holocaust.

    Avey was a British soldier captured during World War Two and sent to a labor camp close to Auschwitz where he worked at the IG Farben plant alongside inmates from the concentration camp, nicknamed "stripeys" after their uniforms.

    While Avey, a headstrong, battle-hardened soldier, was told about the mass extermination of Jews and experienced the sickening smell from a nearby crematorium, he wanted to see for himself what was happening in Auschwitz.

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.

    HItting the Thanks button wasn't nearly adequate enough for me on this one Dark Knight. Thank you for posting this story.

    I am in awe of this man. The horrors he carries with him are unimaginable and that so many now attempt to sweep it under the rug - there were so many unspoken heroes, bless his heart for speaking now. We must never forget.
