“The mind is a powerful thing. It can take you through walls.”
Denis Avey, The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz: A True Story of World War II

“They say 'stone walls do not a prison make nor iron bars a cage'. It was a quotation I knew as a boy. I had made it my own back then. I knew they couldn't capture my mind. Whilst I could still think, I was free.”
Denis Avey, The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz: A True Story of World War II

“Ernie got it,' I said afterwards. 'His experience taught him that you've got to fight for what's right. It gets you into a lot of trouble but he came to the same conclusion as me.' People think it could never happen here. Don't you believe it; it doesn't take much.”
