In October 1942, Esther Stermer, the matriarch of a Jewish family in the Ukraine, leads her family underground to hide from the pursuing Nazis – and stays nearly a year and a half. Their harrowing story of survival living in near total darkness in two cold, damp caves is one like no other ever told. It was life...like No Place On Earth.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The film mixes emotional accounts by proud survivors from two families with foreign-language re-enactments that are perhaps too faithfully murky.
Fresh: A substantial contribution to Holocaust cinema.
Fresh: Add one more extraordinary survival tale to the canon of Holocaust documentaries: "No Place on Earth."
Fresh: The story told by Janet Tobias' documentary "No Place on Earth" is enough to transcend the film's limitations.
This is an amazing true store about family, love and survival. A must see!
Truth be told!
Excellent truth of a families survival against horrible odds. A story worth hearing, a movie worth watching. My heart goes out to this family!
