Introduction

Escape from Sobibor Focus Question #1 In the film Escape from Sobibor, many useful character traits were apparent in the survival of the prisoners. To survive in Sobibor, one must be courageous, patient, and they must persevere when things get hard.

Though later he discovers that his family is dead, and even with this heartbreak, he keeps going, to get revenge for his family's wrongful deaths.
