Poland hopes to identify remains of Auschwitz hero

As important as it is to remember the 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis, we also must not forget that many others died too.

This article about the excavation of a mass grave of Polish Resistance fighters killed by the Soviets also tells the story of Witold Pilecki, one of the truly great heroes of the war - he volunteered to go to Auschwitz to document the atrocities there. Sadly his accounts were so horrific no-one believed him in the West.
