Witold Pilecki mentioned on Sam Harris’ podcast

“During World War II, Witold Pilecki volunteered for a Polish resistance operation that involved being imprisoned in the Auschwitz death camp in order to gather intelligence and later escape. While in the camp, Pilecki organized a resistance movement and, as early as 1941, informed the Western Allies of Nazi Germany’s Auschwitz atrocities. He escaped from the camp in 1943 after nearly two and a half years of imprisonment.” — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witold_Pilecki
