Witold Pilecki. A Polish soldier, the man who told the world about Auschwitz and the Holocaust. He got himself a Jewish ID, got arrested and sent to Auschwitz (yes that Auschwitz), After reporting on the atrocities witnessed. He escaped in 1943. A British historian wrote, "If there was an Allied hero who deserved to be remembered and celebrated, this was a person with few peers." Before his act of bravery Auschwitz was just considered to be another large prison camp.

On 8 May 1947, Pilecki was arrested by the soviet Ministry of Public Security. Prior to show trial on 3 March 1948, he was repeatedly tortured. On 25 May 1948, he was executed. During his last conversation with his wife he told her "I cannot live. They killed me. Because Oswięcim [Auschwitz] compared with them was just a trifle".
