EXPLOIT WHICH WE HAVE FORGOTTEN …

The only one successful uprising of the prisoners of the Nazi death camp happened in Sobibor, 14th of
October 1943. The insurgents killed the SS men from the camp administration and broke through the
gates. Hundreds of prisoners took part in the escape, more than 50 of them survived until the end of the
war. The uprising was organized and led by a captured Red Army officer of Jewish origin Alexander
Pechersky.
After the war, Pechersky lived in Rostov-on- Don. He passed away in 1990. Now his daughter and his
granddaughter live in Rostov. With their permission, the Alexander Pechersky Foundation was
established. It represents the interests of Alexander Pechersky’s relatives, as well as the other
participants of the uprising. For more than five years we’ve been engaged in perpetuating
the memory of Pechersky and his comrades in different countries (Russia, Israel, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus,
Germany, Holland etc.). The activity of the Foundation is going in two main directions: an official
recognition of the Sobibor heroes (state awards, toponymic objects, monuments, school programs, etc.)
and the popularization of their heroic deeds (documentary and feature films, books, exhibitions,
commemorative events, etc.).
