Once one was actually a prisoner in a camp escape was extremely hard. At Sobibor, one of the most easterly camps, there was a riot: some prisoners managed to flee and to hide in surrounding forests and afterwards to join a group of guerrillas. There were also a few successful escapes from Auschwitz and Treblinka.
