The Grey Zone is a war drama movie released in 2001. It is directed by Tim Blake Nelson and stars David Arquette, Velizar Binev, and David Chandler. The movie is based on the events that occurred in Auschwitz during World War II. It follows the story of a group of Jewish prisoners who were assigned to work in the crematoriums, burning the bodies of their fellow Jews. Among them, there is a doctor named Nyiszli, who works for the Nazis and is forced to perform medical experiments on his fellow prisoners.

The prisoners, who are aware of the cruelty they are being subjected to, plan to blow up the crematoriums and escape. However, they are forced to make tough moral decisions as they struggle to survive in a place where death and violence are the norm. On the other hand, Nyiszli grapples with his conscience as he becomes increasingly aware of the horrors that he is involved in and the true nature of the Nazis.

It portrays the moral dilemma faced by the Jewish prisoners, who are forced to participate in the mass murder of their own people, in order to save their own lives.
