But those who were its captives, the Jewish laborers that had been spared from the ovens, knew that they were on borrowed time and that their only hope was to escape… the only question was how to do it. However, because the Germans would kill an equal number of others whenever a group attempted to escape, the captives knew that if ever an escape was tried, all 600 prisoners in the camp would have to be included… logistically precluding any ideas about tunnels or sneak breakouts. Indeed, to have such a mass escape could only mean that the Ukrainian guards and Germain officers would have to be killed, which many of the Jews felt simply reduced themselves to no better than their captors… thus making it a struggle of conscience. And therein lies the story, with the film being based on a factual account of what then happened at that Sobibor prison.
Plot: The true story of WWII’s notorious Sobibor Nazi death camp, where a courageous inmate orchestrates and leads the escape of over 300 prisoners.

Exciting is the word…
..for this somehow little known WW2 movie.If you liked “The Great Escape” or “Schindler`s List” for ex.,you`ll love this movie.It`s just as realistic and well played as those two.Production is high and the setting is very…yes,realistic.There are several gruesome execution scenes in this movie and it will make you hate the Nazis to the bone.What sick people!! I almost covered my eyes several times,but a movie like this is very important information of what happened in the death camps. Arkin,Hauer and Joanne Pacula are all great in this terrific WW2 escape movie.If this movie had been an theatrical release and not a TV miniseries,it would have won several Oscars,no doubt.Watch it!(if you can find it).
A Sobering And Fascinating Story
I consider myself reasonably well-versed in the history of Nazi Germany. I’ve read a lot about it, studied a lot about it, but somehow until finding this movie I had never heard of this death camp called Sobibor. I even rechecked several sources that I have at hand and found no reference to Sobibor, so the narration introducing the movie was clearly true – this was a little known death camp compared to say Treblinka or Auschwitz. That’s unfortunate, because the story told in this movie makes it clear that Sobibor deserves to be better known.
The movie stars Alan Arkin as Leon, a Jewish inmate of the camp, and Rutger Hauer as Sasha, a Russian Jewish soldier who is imprisoned in the camp. Leon and Sasha are among a few hundred Jews who the Nazis find useful, and so they stay alive as slave labour , but Leon and Sasha also become the leaders of a planned mass escape.
The story is fascinating from a historical perspective and very moving from an emotional perspective, and should rank – in my opinion – pretty close to “Schindler’s List” as one of the great Holocaust movies. You can’t possibly watch this and not be deeply touched. Especially moving was actually a post-war note narrated at the end of the movie that tells us about the ironic (in a horrible sense) ultimate fate of Leon.
The only thing I thought weakened this a tiny bit was that the prisoners seemed in surprisingly good shape under the circumstances. I realize that the Nazis thought these were useful Jews, and therefore perhaps treated them better than others, but I still thought the conditions were better than I would have imagined them to be.
Still, a magnificent story that everyone should become familiar with. 9/10
