This harrowing true story recounts the only successful revolt in a Nazi death camp during World War II. Sobibor focuses on Soviet prisoner Alexander Pechersky, who led the rebellion and subsequent escape from the death camp, located in Poland, in 1943. Pechersky had difficult choices to make as he organized other prisoners to help him set free hundreds of Jews. The film, Russia’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, is a graphic and disturbing look at the hellish and brutal conditions Jews faced in the extermination camp. This film contains mature content.
