Buchenwald Concentration Camp, March 1945. The prisoners' struggle for survival and plans of an underground resistance movement are made all the more perilous by the arrival of a young Jewish boy, smuggled in by a new arrival in the hope of hiding him. With the guards tipped off, the courage and humanity of the inmates is tested to the limit as the SS resort to their most inhumane methods to find the boy and the resistance leaders. With the US Army just weeks away the prisoners must remain defiant and pray for liberation in the face of unspeakable brutality.

Brilliant, harrowing German film about Buckenwald Concentration Camp during and after the Second Wor - The Camp review by PV

Spoiler Alert
17/02/2024

This is a brilliant film, harrowing but true, well-written, well-directed and well-acted, with real heart and focus. It matters.

I did think it would be dubbed when I saw no subtitles option BUT thank goodness it had subtitles and is the German. Its cast has many familiar faces for those who know German films and TV drama.

Buchenwald was one of the lesser known concentration camps, because it was not a death camp like Auschwitz and others - it was a work camp, though 50,000+ people died there of 250,000 sent there 1937-45.

The way the war ends in chaos, panic and uncertainty for all, the SS and German soldiers and inmates works very well.

This is directed by the same guy who directed the brilliant 2013 TV miniseries GENERATION WAR.

One of the best wartime concentration camp films ever made. ESCAPE FROM SOBIBOR (1978) is also superb and there are others. This is up there with the best of them.
