As a 3rd generation Holocaust survivor movies about the Holocaust speak to me differently. My grandmother z’l shared with me her story of survival from Auschwitz-Birkenau and Bergen-Belsen. In college, I participated in College March of The Living . I had this image of black and and hell on earth. The trip was in the summer and that imagery that I expected was not there. It was green, sunny and tourist were everywhere. I was shocked and confused. Movies shape the way we understand history. Today the movie SOBIBOR is being released in select theaters and on video on demand(VOD). It is one of the most gripping movies I have seen on the Holocaust. The color and story line are put together to create this unique image for survival. Each scene brings you into the struggle, hate and resistance. One line of the movie really struck me is you must endure to survive. It hits you hard and gives you a new appreciation for ones own Judaism
SOBIBOR tells the story about the only successful revolt in a Nazi death camp during World War II. The rebellion, led by the Soviet prisoner Alexander Pechersky, took place in the Nazi death camp Sobibor, located in Poland, in 1943. The movie focuses on Pecherky and the difficult choices he makes to organize the rebellion and escape. He risks many lives, including his own, to set free hundreds of Jewish prisoners. These very different people show equal heroism and courage and are united by the desire to live.As well as directing, famed Russian actor Konstantin Khabenskiy also stars as Pechersky, alongside Christopher Lambert, who plays Nazi SS officer Karl Frenzel.
The film commemorates the 75th anniversary of the uprising at the Nazi death camp Sobibor. It was the only successful prisoner uprising during World War II and became a symbol of the strength of the human spirit and to the ability to fight evil amid horror. However, the uprising never gained wide public attention, in part because Sobibor itself was among the smallest of the Nazi death camp.
The cinematography is masterful.The way they captured scenes to connect with the audiences was powerful and unique. As the Jews of Sobibor were escaping you felt that you were running with them hoping for a new day.
