Very interesting and informative documentary
19 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I found this documentary by chance in my local public library and I was very impressed. The stories of the Jewish refugees are moving and offer insight into a little-known or discussed part of history. It is well worth seeking out and watching this film.

The only criticism I can make: I wish that the filmmakers had used an interpreter in order to speak with more Chinese people (not just the single English-speaking historian). It would have been fascinating to hear from some of the Chinese people who lived alongside the Jewish refugees during WWII and I think that would have really added to the film's reconstruction of history.
