Synopsis

"Using an interview granted to me by Yehuda Lerner in Jerusalem in 1979 during the filming of 'Shoah', I have now made 'Sobibor, October 14, 1943, 4 p.m', the place, month, day, year and hour of the only successful uprising in a Nazi extermination camp." -- Claude Lanzmann. In Sobibor death camp thousands of Jews were killed, but on October 14th, 1943, it became the site of an amazing act of defiance, as 365 prisoners staged a revolt, leading to the escape and survival of forty-seven people. Sobibor was unique as both the only camp to experience an organized insurrection, and the only death camp at which SS guards were killed by their Jewish prisoners.
