There are many forms of escape and many reasons for needing to do it. In psychological terms, it’s the ‘fight or flight’ response. Some, like Harry Houdini, turned escape into a death-defying form of entertainment, but for others, escape was the only way of fleeing a miscarriage of justice or the brutality of a concentration camp. Henri Charrière attempted to escape from a penal colony in French Guiana nine times and was finally successful in 1941. Learn about Rudolf Vrba’s incredible escape from the Auschwitz concentration camp and his subsequent attempts to alert authorities about the atrocities there. Who can forget Bram van der Stok, the most decorated aviator in Dutch history, and one of only three men to escape from the German POW camp Stalag Luft III in ‘the Great Escape’ of 1943? Be inspired by these amazing stories as they come to life through BioViews®, a short biographical story, similar to an interview. These inspirational audios from Amazing People Worldwide® provide a new way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions and changed our world.
