|A tale of courage & endurance|
Treated as spies, rather than POWs, these men are beaten — then sent to Buchenwald Concentration Camp in Germany. It is here that Sam witnesses the darkest side of humanity — gas chambers, torture and starvation. Yet it is also here that he comes to understand the true resilience and unfathomable courage of the victims.
Behind Enemy Lines is partially based on a true incident from WWII, in which 168 Allied airmen were captured and sent to Buchenwald. Twenty-six of these men were Canadian.
