"Sobibor" is based on the history of the Sobibór extermination camp uprising during WWII and Soviet officer Alexander Pechersky. When he was a POW in Sobibor, he managed to do the impossible - to organize a revolt and mass escape of the prisoners. Many of the escapees were later caught and died - the rest led by Pechersky managed to join the partisans. Script based on the book by Ilya Vasiliev: "Alexander Pechersky: Breakthrough to Immortality"
Most Russian movies concerning WW2 are pretty reliable (and certainly watchable), although they seem to be riddled with propaganda and as 'Sobibor' does, depicts all the Germans as as murdering, cartoonish sadists . This is a shame really as they themselves, have so much more right to churn out these films than any other nation.
