Escape from Sobibor is a made for television movie based on an amazing real-life story about the most successful uprising of Jewish death camp prisoners in World War II. The inspiring revolt and escape, which took place on October 13, 1943, eventually caused the Nazis to close the death camp. Of the 600 prisoners held at the camp, half of them escaped. Most of them perished in the weeks afterwards, but the camp was such a sore spot for the Nazis that they demolished the prison and placed a forest over it.

The movie stands as a tribute to the bravery of the prisoners, highlighting that even in the most oppressive and ugly of times, the human spirit prevails.
