Escape from Auschwitz

Post Neon Knight on Wed 7 Mar - 8:47

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5260807/The-amazing-story-Auschwitz-escapees.html

The whole article is worth reading if you have time, but I'll just quote the story I found most interesting:

On July 21, 1944, the guards manning the main gate allowed an SS man and a female inmate to pass through. What they did not know was that the man was in fact a Pole called Jerzy Bielecki, who had been arrested in 1940 for attempting to join the Polish Army.

During his incarceration, Bielecki had been forced to work in a grain warehouse, where he met a young woman called Cyla Cybulska. Although male and female inmates were forbidden to talk, Bielecki and Cybulska managed to snatch a few words, and after a while, they fell in love. Cyla was adamant she would not survive Auschwitz. Her entire family had been murdered by Nazis, but Bielecki insisted she would live. He was good to his word, and after managing to cobble together an SS uniform, the couple made their audacious escape. After they left the camp, Bielecki and Cybulska walked through the countryside for ten days, until they eventually found refuge with Bielecki’s uncle.

Towards the end of the war, the couple decided to part ways in order to lessen their chances of being recaptured, and they promised they would get back together when the fighting ceased. Unfortunately, in the chaotic aftermath of the war, the couple could not find each other, and Cyla was informed Bielecki had been killed.

It would not be until May 1983, when she was living in New York, that Cyla was told by her cleaning lady she had just watched a documentary featuring their incredible story, and that Bielecki was alive and living in Poland. The couple met the following month. She implored him to leave his wife and children, but he refused. After several meetings, Cyla returned to New York, and vowed never to see him again. She died in 2005, and he passed away six years later.

That is a is an incredible story, a little sad that they did not end up together.
Perhaps in another life?
