Dr. Hans Munch, called the "Good Man Of Auschwitz", was the only doctor who helped the prisoners from the inside. He faked experiments to keep the prisoners from being gassed, refused to choose those to be killed at risk of his own life, and even helped some escape. . At risk of his own life, he did what he could to save as many as he could.
