Trivia

In 1964, the East Berlinbased Berliner Zeitung am Abend located the child upon whose story the story was based: Stefan Jerzy Zweig, who survived Buchenwald at the age of four with his father Zacharias, with the help of two prisoner functionaries: Robert Siewert and Willi Bleicher. Bleicher, a former member of the Communist Party of Germany (Opposition) and the kapo of the storage building, was the one who convinced the SS to turn a blind eye to the child. When Zweig was to be sent to Auschwitz, prisoners who were tasked with compiling the deportees' list erased his name and replaced him with Willy Blum, a sixteenyearold Sinto boy. Zweig moved to Israel after liberation, and later studied in France. After he was discovered to be the 'Buchenwald child', he settled in East Germany, where he remained until 1972. Zweig received much media and the public attention in the country. Blum's fate was only disclosed after the German reunification. See more »

Goofs

Kapos and inmates would not have referred to SS NCO's and Officers as 'Herr' as this was only used for Heer, Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine ranks. The use of 'Herr' was seen as a nod to the Prussian aristocracy which the SS eschewed. See more »

As close to reality as it gets
17 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

People who can see this docudrama without feeling any pain, compassion or empathy for the victims locked in the Buchenwald Camp, or disgrace on behalf of or anger against the psychopaths and brainwashed men who tortured and butchered them, are either psychopaths and brainwashed themselves, or they simply haven't seen any film like Naked Among Wolves, or any documentary about the concentration- or extermination camps of Nazi Germany. For someone who are able to say this wasn't a very good film, I recommend to get much deeper into the subject.

YouTube is full of documentaries on the subject, also from when the highest commanding officer of the US Army, General Eisenhower, gave orders to force the population of the nearby town of Weimar to visit the camp and witness the horrible deeds of the Nazi regime. Perhaps people who are not able to realize reality, even still after seeing this brilliant film, should pay Auschwitz a visit. We who are able to experience this horrific moment in history only through this masterpiece are lucky, because this is as close to reality as it gets.
