Presented in Commemoration of Yom HaShoah.

Dir. Konstantin Khabensky (Russia, 2018, 110 min)

“Sobibor” tells the story about the only successful revolt in a Nazi death camp during World War II. The rebellion, led by the Soviet prisoner Alexander Pechersky, took place in the Nazi death camp Sobibor, located in Poland, in 1943. The movie focuses on Pecherky and the difficult choices he makes to organize the rebellion and escape. He risks many lives, including his own, to set free hundreds of Jewish prisoners. These very different people show equal heroism and courage and are united by the desire to live.
