"Sobibor" is based on the history of the Sobibór
extermination camp uprising during WWII and Soviet officer Alexander
Pechersky. When he was a POW in Sobibor, he managed to do the impossible
- to organize a revolt and mass escape of the prisoners. Many of the
escapees were later caught and died - the rest led by Pechersky managed
to join the partisans. Script based on the book by Ilya Vasiliev:
