4.0 out of 5 stars REAL MOVIE NEWS REVIEW September 13, 2013
By Ryan
Format:DVD
Regardless of the decades that have passed since the horrific atrocities of the Nazi Holocaust in Europe, stories of inspirational survival continue to sprout up. I suppose this is a silver lining in the tragedy that befell so many families; that there were some who were able to persevere and survive. Entire family trees exist because of the bold decisions a few made in order to avoid entering the ghettos, not to mention the concentration camps.

In October of 1942, Esther Stermer and her various immediate and distant family members were forced to enter caves outside of their city in order to avoid the Nazis. They were joined by many other families and eventually caught, but were able to escape before being sent away for good. They then found another cave which had never been discovered, and it had its own water supply to help decrease any need to leave shelter. The women and children lived in the cave for nearly a year and a half, which is the longest recorded uninterrupted underground survival period. The men would leave their hiding place only to seek out food, much of which needed to be stolen discretely.

The story is discovered by amateur cave explorer Chris Nicola comes across some of their belongings in the first cave and decides to investigate. Much of the film is told through interviews, however, and then the last section of the movie is dedicated to the survivors who are able to return and see the caves this many years later. One gentleman in his 90s brings his grand-daughter to see the caves that he survived in, making for a moving revelation about the generations of family members who are alive because of the bravely of those few.

Esther Stermer, matriarch of the Stermer family saved her family from almost certain death during the Holocaust by taking them into the underground caves in the Ukraine. This compelling docu-drama narrates how this came about.

In 1942, the situation for Jews in Ukraine was dire as the Nazis and local collaborators rounded up Jews for deportation to the labor and extermination camps. Many Jews were also rounded up by the Ukrainian police and shot. Esther decided that the family would hide in some caves, but these caves were known to the locals, and the Nazis and Ukrainian police found them and arrested them. However, with a combination of good luck and determination, the family survives and manages to escape once again, and this time they make their way to a cave that is not known to others. Not only do they find refuge here, they are also lucky to have running water which makes it convenient for them as they don't have to leave the caves as often, unless to find food. In all, 38 people from two Jewish families, the Stermers and Wexlers, survived the war in the caves.

The surviving members of the family recount what it was like at the time, with tales of near-misses and periods of living in uncertainty, but the story is one of survival and eventual triumph over adversity. During a time when millions of Jews were slaughtered, this tale of courage, resilience, and survival is one that gladdens the heart. I especially enjoyed the scene where some of the surviving members, the oldest aged 91, visit the Ukraine to revisit scenes of their past, including the caves, accompanied by their grandchildren. Truly a memorable docu-drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most unique film about the Holocause I have seen August 20, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a story of human survival more than about the Holocaust.. It's rated R but I have been with children 10 and over who have been inspired by the survivor's stories. Absolutely worth the cost.

It was designed as a documentary. It captured the emotions and the hardships that these Jews sustained in the holocaust.
It is, however, not an exclusively pictorial rendition of movie.
