The hero many have never heard of, but should. Alexander Pechersky was a Soviet officer that helped save many prisoners from one of WWII most deathly concentration camps, Sobibor. These sort of acts of heroism deserve stories, books and movies being told about them. Pechersky is the real life hero of WWII that did the unthinkable and joined the resistance against the Nazis.
The movie is beautifully shot and the action is intense. Konstantin Khabenskiy stars as Pechersky and is also the director of the film, both of which he excels in. The script was based on a book by Ilya Vasiliev, but Khabenskiy brings it to life with the images, on-screen heroics and tense moments that keep you locked in. History can’t let us omit the lives and stories of people like Pechersky, who risked it all to help others.
As far as historic war dramas go, Sobibor is right up there near the top.
SOBIBOR is out now in Theater in Los Angeles and everywhere on VOD and Digital
