the uprising in the Gypsy camp at Birkenau (16th May 1944) - looking for first person testimony

I am looking for records of first person testimony from witnesses to the uprising in the Gypsy camp at Birkenau (16th May 1944) and/or the liquidation of the camp on the night of 2-3rd August 1944.

Does anyone know if any testimony exists? And if so, where I could access it?

The only references I can find are brief factual accounts (dates, numbers of people involved), but I am particularly interested in first person accounts.

Many thanks,
