There is nothing like this documentary. Sure there are documentaries about Jews trying to escape Nazi Germany -- but this is about escaping to Shanghai! And the community that they created there during World War II became uniquely multi-cultural -- with Germans, Poles, Iranians, etc. Under constant threat from the Japanese, treated like outcasts, and forced to sell businesses and live in a ghetto, their bravery in surviving these indignities matched that displayed by their co-religionists living in Europe. This is a outstanding documentary: an incredible series of stories, a historical document, and a personal account of hope, tragedy, hatred, and redemption.
