Revised and Updated "Brilliantly reconstructs the degradation and drama of Sobibor . . . A memorable and moving saga, full of anger and anguish, a reminder never to forget" -San Francisco Chronicle On October 14, 1943, six hundred Jews imprisoned in Sobibor, a secret Nazi death camp in eastern Poland, revolted. They killed a dozen SS officers and guards, trampled the barbed wire fences, and raced across an open field filled with anti-tank mines. Against all odds, more than three hundred made it safely into the woods. Fifty of those men and women managed to survive the rest of the war. In this edition of Escape from Sobibor, fully updated in 2012, Richard Rashke tells their stories, based on his interviews with eighteen of the survivors. It vividly describes the biggest prisoner escape of World War II. A story of unimaginable cruelty. A story of courage and a fierce desire to live and to tell the world what truly went on behind those barbed wire fences.

Review:

“A sensitive, thoughtful, and well-researched account of the ‘biggest prisoner escape of World War II.’” —Samuel Gold, Jewish Chicago 
“A journalistic account in the tradition of Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood.” —Choice 

“The authoritative version of the breakout from the Nazi experimentation camp at Sobibor. . . . Gives us a very good idea of how the will to survive can lead quite ordinary people to surmount the most extraordinary obstacles.” —The Jerusalem Post 

“This moving and angry book deserves to be read.” —The Washington Post 

“A unique, unforgettable, deeply moving and effective account of a death camp.” —Detroit Jewish News

From the Back Cover:

Poignant in its honesty and grim in its details, Escape from Sobibor offers stunning proof of resistance - in this case successful - by victims of the Holocaust. The smallest of the extermination camps operated by Nazi Germany during World War II, Sobibor also was the scene of the war's biggest prisoner escape. Richard Rashke's interviews with eighteen of those who survived provide the foundation for this volume. He also draws on books, articles, and diaries to make vivid the camp, the uprising, and the escape. In the afterword to this reprint, Rashke relates how the Polish government in October 1993 observed the fiftieth anniversary of the escape and how it has beautified the site since a film based on his book appeared on Polish television.
