Girl No. 217

Chelovek No. 217

Directed by Mikhail Romm
Soviet Union, 1945


An anti-Nazi film, it depicted a Russian girl enslaved to an inhuman German family. She is even robbed of her name and forced to answer to No. 217. Subplots depict abuse directed at other POWs. This reflected the use by Nazis of OST-Arbeiter as slave labor, including as family servants.
