Yehuda Lerner tells about his escape from Sobibor extermination's camp
23 February 2004 | by guiguilSee all my reviews

It is a fixed shot of Yehuda Lerner telling how he succeeded to escape from the Extermination camp of Sobibor. The sober way of this documentary keep the emotion of that simple man heroic action. The first time I saw this documentary I was dazzled by the modesty of Yehuda Lerner in regard to his heroic action. He says anyway he was already dead so why not trying to escape (he escaped many times from concentration camp before the extermination camp of Sobibor) and that he had a good star.

Besides this great lesson of fighting of life of this kid (he was only 16), we learn how was managed an extermination camp and we have a lot of details that give us an idea how it was. We understand too how difficult it was for jewish population and others extermined people to fight against Nazi. People could not believe they were getting extermined and they didn't know they had to organised themselves against that and moreover it is difficult to fight when you are not a soldier or a political militant. You can see that in the beautiful movie Roman Polanski's The Pianist.

It is a must see movie because it is about the only (or one of the only) succeeded escaped from extermination camp.
