Storyline

The year is 1943 and the "last of the Jews" are being "evacuated" from Berlin. They are locked in cattle cars with no food and little water. During the trip several of the characters are drawn out and vignettes of their lives are highlighted to restore some humanity to their animal existence aboard the train. The suffering and agony is palpable. Some parts can be watched in double speed as they are just just filler. If you exclude the final theatrical device thrown in at the end, the movie is worth watching for it's historical relevance. Written by Bill F

Goofs

When they are in the train station in Berlin, a woman panics and begins to sing Di Partizaner Lid. First off, it's a Yiddish song, and German Jews were notorious for not speaking Yiddish; also, it was a song written/sung by the Jewish Partisans of the Vilna Ghetto, and would not have been known in Berlin until after the Shoah.

Very hard and my my tribute to all the innocent victims
28 October 2007 | by (Riehen, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I expected a hard film and I wasn't wrong. If you cannot digest suffering scenes this isn't for you. The story is well built and shows the countdown from the arrests until the arrival to the nightmare Ausschwitz. I was never boring because there were lot of moments where I have to think about. I still cannot believe that the humanity is able to do pains and kill so many innocent people but it's the truth. The history shows that the Jewish people have been always followed in the past and I can only pray for all the victims and children that have to die during the second World War. DER LETZTE ZUG has a great meaning for me and we should never forget what happened in the wars. All the actors played very strong and this movie should earn at least attention from all the audience. 7/10.
