Witness to Auschwitz

The Soviet Red Army captured the Auschwitz death camp in southern Poland on Jan. 27, 1945. As the 70 the anniversary nears, a look back at Rudolf Vrba (1924-2006), the man who escaped Auschwitz and whose warnings to the world went unheeded. Vrba became a professor at the University of British Columbia after the war.
