Free Movies Escape From Sobibor

During WWII, the death camp at Treblinka had an escape, causing the
Commandant at a similar camp in Sobibor to vow (actually threaten) that
his camp would never experience the same thing. 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. Free Online
