During WWII, the death camp at Treblinka had an escape, causing the Commandant at a similar camp in Sobibor to vow (actually threaten) that his camp would never experience the same thing. But those who were its captives, the Jewish laborers that had been spared from the ovens, knew that they were on borrowed time and that their only hope was to escape... the only question was how to do it. On October 14, 1943, members of the camp's underground resistance succeeded in covertly killing eleven German officers and a number of Ukrainian guards. Of the 600 inmates in the camp, roughly 300 escaped, although most were later re-captured and killed. The escape forced the Nazis to close the death camp, dismantling it and planting a forest.

The historical recreation of the escape from the Nazi Death Camp Sobibor, where approximately one-quarter million Jews were executed. Of the 600 inmates in the camp, roughly 300 escaped, although all but 50 - 70 were later re-captured and killed. After the escape, SS Chief Heinrich Himmler ordered the death camp closed. It was dismantled, bulldozed under the earth, and planted over with trees to cover it up. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

I can see why the ratings are relatively low because most people want to be entertained rather than seeing some hard reality regardless of how well played. It took me 3/4 of the movie to figure everything out so hang in there. It all comes together in a way only the mind can make better. This role truly shows Marisa's range of acting as exceptional without relying on her looks.

What this film does, better than almost every other movie in this kind of genre does, is make its characters feel like reel people. Take the main character for example, he could have been portrayed as a saint. An innocent cut down in cold blood. However, the film choses to show us all sides of his personality. Yes he deserves our sympathy, but he is no saint. He has had problems with drugs, anger management, and responsibility to his family. In fact everyone, from his mother, to his friends, and even his eventual killer, are portrayed as people with different levels and depths. We keep seeing these awful real-life tragedies play out in the news and in our lives. They spark passionate debate and discussion. Which is good. And hopefully those who see this film will be inspired to look at these tragedies and have a second look at what is going on around us all.
