THE ESCAPE ARTIST The Man Who Broke Out of Auschwitz to Warn the World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jonathan Freedland

Biography & Memoir • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

This is the rare audiobook that combines an extraordinary story with an exceptional performance by the author. Jonathan Freedland captivates the listener from the beginner with a perfect pace and tone. Unlike most books about Holocaust survivors, Freedland's biography of Walter Rosenberg, the first person to escape from Auschwitz, is uplifting, rather than depressing. After his escape with another prisoner, Rosenberg takes the name of Rudolf Verba to help him survive and achieve his goal of revealing to the world the atrocities being committed by the Nazis. Freedland's delivery is perfect by every measure. It's one of the best performances in this genre--and in the ranks of all audiobooks. D.J.S.
