A true story about surviving the WWII antisemitic holocaust.
19 October 2003 | by babylon_5fanSee all my reviews

I was 17, and living in France when this movie was made, and even then, I found it very inspirational and sad at the same time. I never forgot it. Even today, I still remember the face of the actor who played young Martin Gray, and that was 20 years ago. This movie had an impact on me and it would be a treasure to own, as much as Schindler's List.

Michael York plays a middle-aged holocaust survivor who tapes his account of how he used his survival instincts as a young teenager to escape his possible fate. Unfortunately, his pain didn't end there.

This movie demonstrates the incredible strength of the human spirit, the desire to survive, and how one can never give up, no matter what.
