Semyon Rozenfeld, Last Known Survivor of Death Camp Escape, Dies at 96

“I’m not capable of killing a human being,” Mr. Rozenfeld recalled saying. “But a Nazi — yes.”

By the way, a great movie: The Grey Zone.

The Grey Zone The Film
I remember many many years ago (decades ago, probably) watching a movie (maybe a made-for-TV movie) called Escape from Sobibor. I was riveted. I think it was the first time I'd heard of that particular camp.

As for The Grey Zone: in spring '18 I taught a class on the Holocaust and in the "media images" section we watched that film in class. We were all devastated emotionally by it, as you can imagine, but its power was immense. It also raised so many wonderful (if heart-wrenching) questions for discussion -- it was very worthwhile to watch it despite its horror.

Thanks for your post.

Reps to Karen and Cida. May I recommend a more recent film documentary on a related subject that has had little publicity, Who Will Write Our History, by Rita Grossman and Nancy Spielberg.

It's so sad to see that generation pass. Kids today will not have the privilege of hearing their first hand accounts. Just so their stories continue to be told.

I've watched it three times. It would come up in the programming every few years. I can't watch films like that anymore. They give me bad dreams. I've lost some of my resilience. The film was very well done, though, IMO.

Exactly, The Grey Zone was devastating and powerful. I'm not sure I could watch it again. I hugely admire Tim Blake Nelson who wrote AND directed it.
