  • răpciune's rating of the film The Danube Exodus

    did anyone verify the information in the film? in 39 romania was not ruled by Legionari, but by Carol II. in 39 poland was free, why would polish jews flee? the movie raises lots of question marks. can anyone provide a link for further information? otherwise, the flic is quite offensive, though well done. i would really like to know more about this, any suggestion is welcome.
