Trivia

A World War II deportation freight train was built from scratch with rusty old wheels, parts, and debris found in an old train scrapyard. The deportation scene, where the "chosen" Jews boarded the deportation train, taking them to the camps, was shot on disused, weed-grown tracks in the scrap backyard of an old train station in Bucharest, Romania.

Brilliant movie inspired by true events!
28 September 2018 | by digiteumSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie, though I admit I skimmed part of it. The screenplay was very good, and the suffering to the Jews very real, Sonson, a young man stands up for the oppressed and fights back.

Having been to Yad Vashem on several occasions the film was very vivid, particularly of the resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto.

Am Yisrael Chai!
