** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustav_Wagner Sergeant Wagner]] is just as much of an asshole in real life as he is here, [[HistoricalVillainDowngrade except that he didn't even try to be affable to the prisoners before shooting them and was straight-up sadistic]].

''Escape from Sobibor'' is a 1987 British made-for-TV film that dramatizes the 1943 escape of over three hundred prisoners from the Sobibor extermination camp. Inmates who were selectively spared for their skills in manufacturing material goods plot their escape from the camp, in part utilizing the skills they possess to make it happen. The film stars stars Creator/AlanArkin and Creator/RutgerHauer; it is based on the book of the same written by Richard Rashke, and camp survivor Thomas Blatt (who helped Rashke with his book) served as a consultant.

* GoryDiscretionShot: The film uses this whenever a character is murdered. One exception is [[spoiler:when the Nazis execute 26 prisoners for trying to escape and tell the others that anyone who averts his/her eyes will be executed.]] The scene is shot from a long range, though.

* DeathByMaterialism: The prisoners use a fancy leather coat to lure one SS guard into a trap. They even use the coat to restrain him while they're killing him.

* YouKilledMyFather: [[spoiler:Inverted: One of the inmates quietly states "My family.." before hitting an elderly guard in the head with an axe. Subverted with the Szmajzner brothers, who are motivated in their escape by anger at the Nazis for their families deaths, but don't state this before taking down the guards.]]
