The Report

The Report tells the story of two young Slovak Jews – Freddy and Walter – who were deported to Auschwitz in 1942. They managed to escape on 10 April 1944 and compiled a 32-page report about the situation inside the camp. The report included the camp layout, construction details of the gas chambers and furnaces, and a label from a Zyklon B canister, which was extremely convincing. It has since become known as the Vrba-Wetzler Report, and despite its grueling journey out of the camp, it was the first detailed report which the Allies received and regarded as credible. The Vrba-Wetzler Report thus helped to save more than 120 thousand Hungarian Jews from being deported to Auschwitz.
