The Great Escape
Dare to escape ?
Well this was no ordinary penitentiary. It was the infamous dachau concentartion camp. Probably not as infamous as its bigger cousin, Auschwitz, where they mercilessly gassed thousands of jews, gypsies and commmies alike. Dachau was all ready to do murder enmasse but the Americans arrived in time.
So, how does one escape from this facility. Well you needed the standard escape kit.
Contents of the kit.
1. Compelling reason to escape - Life vs Death ..
2. Daring plan - digging underground tunnels perhaps
3. some strength - if you could steal a few breads from ur fellow jew
4. Whole lot of guts - definitely
So, doesnt sound very difficult. But NO. Only ONE guy escaped..!!!! and that too during the initial years of the camp around 1933.
You were broken down mentally, physically and emotionally at Dachau.
So your dreams of a Great Escape would remain as dreams.
