About the Book
See the great reviews for Sobibor on GoodReads.com
Poignant in its honesty and grim in details, Escape from Sobibor provides a vivid account of the biggest escape from a Nazi extermination camp during World War II.
Information on the Sobibor concentration camp was sketchy at best until Rashke tracked down and interviewed as many of the survivors as possible. The result is "the first reliable history of this camp. A well-researched and well-written work"
— Library Journal
"Brilliantly reconstructs the degradation and drama of Sobibor."
— San Francisco Chronicle.
"A sensitive, thoughtful, and well-researched account of the 'biggest prisoner escape of World War II.'"
— Jewish Chicago.
"Breathtakingly suspenseful and horrifying at the same time."
— Publishers Weekly
Escape From Sobibor was made into an award-winning CBS three hour movie special.
