world war II prisoners takes control of concentration camp and disguise as nazi german

I saw that movies about 10years ago, and I might confuse some memories. But here it goes
Its the story of a camp operated by the nazi, then the prisoners find a way to control the camp and dress themselves like german. They make sure that they get passed the german site inspections. I remember that at the first inspection, the german inspector mentionned that the food was too good and other stuff that they should do because the prisoners should not have such a nice environment.  So the prisoners disguised into fake german officers starts to take their role more seriously to make sure they are not discovered. They go so far that at the end 
---------------warning spoiler-------------------------
when they get rescued, the fake director is declared nazi by the prisoners
I dont think it was a based on a true story, but I could be wrong.
if any of you could help me, I have been looking intesively for this movie title for a week, I would be really happy.
