In September 1940, Polish Army officer Witold Pilecki volunteered for a potentially suicidal undercover mission for the Polish Underground — to get himself arrested by the Nazi Germans and sent to Auschwitz as a prisoner. His mission: to smuggle out intelligence about this new German concentration camp and build a resistance organization among the inmates.

Pilecki’s remarkable mission was intentionally suppressed by the postwar Polish communist regime for nearly fifty years, and is virtually unknown in the West.
