En route to Auschwitz by cattle car, a friend and I worked all day to pry open the bars of the window.
want to know HOW he pried those bars open?
he escaped by using rags dipped in human waste to pry apart the bars on the train window and then jumping

then, he's in St. Cyprien, an internment camp,
His friend Leon Osterreicher came to visit him and instructed him to escape by climbing under the camp’s fence.
I guess he couldn't figure that out for himself.
But wait there's more!
This paragon of truth thinks another survivor is well, LYING!
Deli Strummer, symbol of the Holocaust, was caught stretching the truth, it raised a hard question: How much suffering is enough?
Six years ago, John Holzworth, a now-retired teacher from Fallston High School in Harford County, Md., called the council to say he didn't want Strummer back after she spoke twice in his classroom. She claimed in conversation that she'd spent over a year in Flossenburg, a German concentration camp, yet when Holzworth consulted a book she'd written a few years before, the book claimed she'd been in Auschwitz during the entire period in question
For emphasis, they brought in the best...
Under the scrutiny of Langer, the testimony expert, and Raul Hilberg, one of the world's preeminent Holocaust scholars, Deli Strummer's account simply fell apart.

Don't think it's a happy ending though, at the end of the article the author says her "scars" are real.
