Heavily based on the novel by Richard Rashke, Escape From Sobibor tells the
inspirational true story of the only successful mass-escape from a Nazi concentration.
In 1942 Operation Reinhard, the final solution to the Jewish question was put into operation. Three death camps were built in Eastern Poland, near the Russian border, at Treblinka, Belzec, and Sobibor. Sobibor opened in March 1942. Initially, three gas chambers housed in a brick building used carbon monoxide to kill Jewish prisoners, with three more gas chambers added later.
At the height of its operation, Sobibor had trains overcrowded with prisoners arriving daily. During its operation, it’s estimated that over a quarter of a million people were exterminated in this camp, the vast majority being Jewish. The evil and ghastly operation at Sobibor came to a grinding halt, when on October 14, 1943, the prisoners revolted and the Germans lost control of the camp.
This made-for-television production tells this extraordinary story.
