The tragic yet hopeful story at Auschwitz

Rudolf Höss, former head of Auschwitz, experienced a profound change before his execution. Originally a German Catholic who became an atheist and Nazi, he committed numerous atrocities. The humane treatment by Polish jailers during his imprisonment led to his conversion to Catholicism. Days before his hanging, Höss expressed remorse, renounced Nazi ideology, and emphasized the power of kindness and independent thought.
