By chance they captured the horrors of nearby Auschwitz – the gas chamber and Crematorium I, the infamous execution ‘wall’, the guard towers and security fencing and row after row of barrack like huts where the prisoners lived. Auschwitz From The Air contains an exclusive interview with a surviving escapee of Auschwitz.
