Premiere of Russian film "Sobibor"

Skopje, 14 May 2018 (MIA) - Premiere of Russian film "Sobibor" directed by Konstantin Khabenskiy will take place in the Macedonian Cinematheque on Monday.

"Sobibor" is based on the history of the Sobibor extermination camp uprising during WWII and Soviet officer Alexander Pechersky. When he was a POW in Sobibor, he managed to do the impossible - to organize a revolt and mass escape of the prisoners.
