Auschwitz Report

Witold Pilecki

Pilecki reports (also called Witold’s Reports) are the names of reports from Auschwitz concentration camp by Witold Pilecki. They were written after Pilecki’s escape from the camp. Next to Karski’s reports are the first source about the Holocaust in the world and valuable documentary evidence. “Report – 1945” is the third and final report. It was written by Pilecki after the war, in 1945. This report was a summary of the relationship so far and was the largest, counting over a hundred pages of manuscript. This account has also been extended to include the author’s own comments and reflections, thus gaining literary value and being a record of Pilecki’s memories of that period.

Witold Pilecki


Why was this website?

Witold Pilecki is an extraordinary figure and his extensive report is an extraordinary testimony to the heroic history of the captain. It is there in the form of a report and at the same time a story full of emotions, the cruelty of Auschwitz. So I have to describe as dry facts as my colleagues want. It was said: The more you hold the facts alone, giving them without comment, it will be more valuable. So I will try … but man was not wood – I’m not talking about stone anymore (although it seemed that a stone would have to sweat sometimes). So sometimes, among the given facts, I will, however, insert a thought that expresses what was felt … Witold Pilecki writes at the beginning of his report. The full text of Witold Pilecki’s reports was first published in Poland only in 2000 – fifty-five years after the war. Previously, they were completely unknown both to the Polish scientific community as well as to the citizens. This was because Witold Pilecki, who returned after the war to Poland, was accused of espionage by the Communist People’s Republic of Poland. Until 1989, all information related to Witold Pilecki’s life and accomplishments was subject to censorship in Poland.

In recent times, Poland’s lies in allegations of complicity in German crimes during the Second World War and in the Holocaust have appeared. However, there is no information about the Polish contribution in denouncing the crime. And it was the Pole, the Polish Army commander Witold Pilecki was the first to work on the death of Auschwitz. The story of this heroic captain should be available online in the largest languages. Undoubtedly, the dissemination of the texts of the Witold Pilecki Report will enhance the interest in Polish history and historical sciences. In addition, it can inspire the people of culture and creators to use the captain’s character and his incredible history in artistic creativity. Translation and publication of the report by Witold Pilecki will help to separate the victim from the executioner. The foreign scientific community will understand why Poles and Poles react allergically to accusations of cooperation in the Holocaust, calling concentration camps in Polish camps, and will look at Polish history from the Second World War through the eyes of a Pole who worked on a Nazi German death and death factory.
