Caught in the crossfire of Nazi opression, two people triumph in Escape to Life, a trus story of courage, luck and passion, set against the darkest moment of the twentieth century.

After survivng a perilous escape from one of Auschwitz's labor camps, William Herkovic miraculously made his way across Nazi-occupied Europe. Becoming one of the first recorded eyewitnesses of Hitler's atrocities, he alerted the underground, and was eventually credited with the rescue of hundreds, perhaps thousands, bound for gas chambers.
