As an international resistance fighter during World War II, Salvatore Lombardo risked his life to stop oppression so that others could live. However, he eventually found himself imprisoned by the Nazis along with other resistance fighters, POWs and civilians.
He was in no ordinary camp. It was a slave labor camp. There is little known about these camps because the survival rate was almost non-existent. The Nazis conveniently blew up these temporary camps when they no longer needed them.
Being temporary camps they did not have or need the permanence of barbed wire. The walls were huge, horrific German shepherd dogs that encircled the camps. The dogs were capable of increasing or decreasing the camp perimeters at a whim.
