Escape From Sobibor (1987)
Starring: Joanna Pacula, Rutger Hauer, Alan Arkin
Director: Jack Gold
Category: Action / Adventure, War
Studio: Westlake Media
119 mins



Vowing not to follow a prison break at a Treblinka death camp in the WWII days, the commandant at Sobibor threatens that his camp would never allow a similar escape. The captured Jewish laborers at Sobibor know that being spared from the ovens meant only one thing, hope on borrowed time was escape.

The only question was how to do it.

Each escape meant the death of a captive left behind in the hands of the Germans. If an escape were to free the 600 imprisoned lives, tunnel sneak breakouts defied all possibilities.

A man's escape posed danger, even death, to Ukranian guards and German officers who held Sobibor close at watch. Were the jews no better than their captors if their escape brought another's death? A struggle of conscience befalls this story of survival based on a factual account of 1 life at Sobibor.
