The Auschwitz ReportThe true story of two Slovak Jews, who finally manage to escape the Auschwitz concentration camp and find themselves up against allies that don't believe their harrowing report.
Two young Slovak Jews, Freddy and Walter, were deported to Auschwitz in 1942. Thanks to meticulous planning and with the help and resilience of their inmates, they manage to escape on April 10, 1944. While the inmates they had left behind courageously stand their ground against the Nazi officers, the two men are driven by the hope that their evidence could save lives. Emaciated and hurt, they make their way through the mountains back to Slovakia and barely manage to cross the border to meet the resistance and The Red Cross. They compile a detailed report about the systematic genocide in the camp. However, with Nazi propaganda and international liaisons still in place, their account seems to be too harrowing to believe.
