RUSSIAN WEEKEND: DRAMATIC TEASER TRAILER FOR WWII MOVIE 'SOBIBOR' WITH CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT ON THE ESCAPE FROM THE INFAMOUS CAMP

  'SOBIBOR' TEASER
 WITH CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT
Sobibor hits Russian cinemas sometime this year
We are launching our Russian weekend today with the ultra dramatic and deeply atmospheric teaser trailer for new Russian World War II movie SOBIBOR which stars Christopher Lambert, Konstantin Khabenskiy, Phillippe Reinhardt, Wolfgang Cerny and Maximilian Dirr.
  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. Part of the escapees
Rutger Hauer starred in the 1987 movie on Sobibor
were later caught and died - the rest led by Pechersky managed to escape and joined the partisans.

DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON
At least 250,000 Russians and Jews were murdered in gas chambers in SOBIBOR by the Nazis. This number makes it the fourth worst extermination camp from World War II. Out of 600 prisoners who tried to escape in the revolt, only about 50 succeeded. Shortly after the revolt, the Germans closed the camp, bulldozed the earth, and planted it over with pine trees to conceal its location.
Prisoners were killed using gas from the exhaust pipes of a tank engine
Today, the site is occupied by the SOBIBOR Museum, which displays a pyramid of ashes and crushed bones of the victims, collected from the cremation pits.

  1. Looks good, but I don't know that we'll ever see it in Canada. No Russian movie seems to make it this far.

  2. Nothing like trying to cover up the evidence of your unspeakable crimes under a makeshift forest. Disgusting!

    1. In my city the Hungarian Nazis used to just kick people off a small cliff close to my old house, we still have a memorial monument A Bird with Broken Wings there.
