Escape from a Nazi death camp. Cover Image DVD DVD

Escape from a Nazi death camp.


The secret Nazi death camp at Sobibor was created solely for the mass extermination of Jews. But on October 14, 1943, in the biggest and most successful prison revolt of the Second World War, the inmates fought back. Using dramatic reenactments four survivors; Toivi Blatt, Philip Bialowitz, Selma Engel-Wijnberg, and former Russian POW Semjon Rozenfeld, tell firsthand accounts of the day they escaped certain death to freedom.
