The Runaway presents the complicated vicissitudes of Kazimierz Piechowski (No. 918) the last living organizer of the most spectacular escape from Auschwitz. Four prisoners wearing SS uniforms fled with weapons in the camp commander’s car. After the escape, Piechowski fought in the Home Underground Army; after the war he was sentenced by the Communist authorities to 10 years in prison.
