Goofs

Kapos and inmates would not have referred to SS NCO's and Officers as 'Herr' as this was only used for Heer, Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine ranks. The use of 'Herr' was seen as a nod to the Prussian aristocracy which the SS eschewed. See more »

Powerful and hard to watch but one of the best films ever made.
2 December 2015 | by madison866-580-569553See all my reviews

Completely riveting from the very beginning, I've never felt so emotionally invested in a film. Every aspect of this was phenomenal, the cast, acting, plot, cinematography and all around production 10/10.

I've always had an interest in WWII, I've watched the movies and documentaries and read all the books I could find but nothing has ever brought it to life and made it real like this movie.

Up until now Shindler's list has been one of the best must see movies of all time. Naked Among Wolves is not only comparable to Shindler's List but easily a much better film. No movie before this comes close to the realism and horror of the holocaust like this, and I doubt any will after either.
