The True Story of the Raid on the Twentieth Train to AuschwitzLarge Print - 2003
'Silent Rebels' tells for the first time the amazing true story of how three young people stopped a train and rescued more than 200 Jews on their way to the Auschwitz death camp. Equipped only with three pairs of pliers, a hurricane lamp and a single pistol, Youra Livchitz, Jean Frankelmon and Robert Maistriau carried out a plan that had been hatched by Jewish members of the resistance but rejected as too dangerous by the armed partisans. Marion Schreiber's gripping book draws on private documents, archive material and police reports, and not least interviews with escapers, to create a vivid, and often very moving, portrait of this event, and the world that engendered it.
