This was a movie I habe seen in the early 80s, but could have been late 70s. Obviously I dont remember the title but I remember some of the story. There were American prisoners in a n**i prison camp, while being transported to another camp, they made a wall in the train, so when the n***s looked in they saw nothing but the wall. 2 soldiers jumped off the train, one of them broke his leg, and in the middle of a snow storm they were climbing up the mountain and found a cave, where they sought refuge. And the last thing I remember was one of the guys that jumped from the train was waiting at a train station. If you could please find this movie for me, it would be greatly appreciated, I would really like to see this movie again.

    There are two movie which resemble the scenes of the type that you have told me.

    The first one is \"Escape From Sobibor\", made in 1987 and starring Alan Arkin and Rutger Hauer.

    Plot Summary: During WWII, the death camp at Treblinka had an escape, causing the Commandant at a similar camp in Sobibor to vow that his camp would never experience the same thing. But those who were its captives, the Jewish laborers that had been spared from the ovens, knew that they were on borrowed time and that their only hope was to escape... the only question was how to do it. Of approximately 600 prisoners who attempted escape in October 1943, around 300 succeeded. However, nearly all were ultimately recaptured; only about 60 people survived Sobibor.

    The other one is \"Gulag\", made in 1985 and starring David Keith and Malcolm MacDowell.

    Plot Summary: Mickey Almon is a sports star turned reporter covering the athletics in Moscow. Framed by the KGB and forced to confess that he was spying for America, he is sentenced to detention in a Gulag, a barbaric prison camp in the wilds of Siberia. Unable to prove his innocence, Mickey must either put up with the inhuman conditions or engineer an escape.
