Exodus from Birkenau
Exodus depicts one of the most heroic pages of humankind history: The revolt of the Jews in the death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Synopsis: Exodus depicts a story that has never before been told cinematically—that of the Sonderkommando uprising at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, in which 135 Sephardic Jewish prisoners from Salonica, Greece plotted to overthrow the SS and blow up the camp’s crematoria.
The Sonderkommando were camp prisoners who were forced to aid their Nazi tormentors in the process of killing fellow prisoners.
The Sonderkommando revolt was a shining moment in Jewish history and the time is ripe to alert the world as to who these people are, why their history is so unique and important and why their dead must be remembered and their living must thrive.
