A remarkable renactment of a true WW 2 story. It is an astonishing account of human survival.

Heart wrenching and powerful. A testament to the human spirit.

Although some of it might have been slicker, that isn't the point, really, for something like this, so I give it the full 5 stars. Moving and partly-dramatised doc, interspersed with interviews. Part of what it does is remind us that WWII anti-semitism was not the province of the Nazis alone; others (some Ukrainians in this case) were responsible for murdering Jews as well.

This story should have been told better than it was in this movie. It seemed to be very disorganized and difficult to follow. The way this was presented was an opportunity lost.

A HORRIFIC MOVIE. I'D RATHER BE SHOT BY THE NAZI'S THAN TO LIVE IN CAVES FOR 511 DAYS IN THE DAMP CAVES OF WATER , MUD AND SHIVERING COLD. WHAT A TREMENDOUS WILL TO LIVE. HOW CAN YOU LIVE ON FLOUR, POTATOES AND LIMESTONE WATER? AMAZING. HOW CAN YOU LIVE IN DARKNESS SO LONG?

Wow. That's all I can say about this movie. Absolutely incredible. The strength of this family and what they did to stay alive...and the man who found them to hear their story. WOW!

A totally different way to stay alive and hide from the Nazi scum. I would highly recommend this DVD.
