Surviving by way of his wits, Englishman escaped loss of life many times, committing bold acts of bravery to do what he notion was once right?helping different prisoners get away and actively partaking within the underground resistance.

till his dying in August 2007, Englishman remained lively, talking out opposed to racism and hatred in seminars for youth. His gripping tale can be broadly learn and should be of curiosity to students of auto/biography, international warfare II background, and the Holocaust.
