I almost could not watch the beginning, it was so dark.

Soo glad that I watched to the end. A few good people who remembered their humanity made sure that he made it back. I remember those who did not make it.

To my surprise, this movie was one of the best I've ever seen. I would compare this film to 'The Pianist'. The storyline was incredible, intense and shows how unrelenting the human spirit can be.

Really good movie! Younger generations may not know what was not so far in the past. I am Polish American, and have toured concentration camps, may we hold to freedom now, that which we have, and not give into the growing great for power and control.
