Yesterday I watched it on DVD. Being very familiar with Otto Frank's life thanks to reading Carol Ann Lee's Otto Frank biography last winter, I remembered that Otto Frank actually was living for a while in New York City working at Macy's. Wiki quote. Otto studied economics in Heidelberg from 1908 to 1909 and had a work experience placement at Macy's Department Store in New York City. However, after leaving for New York, he had to return home briefly after his father died in September 1909, before once again leaving for the United States, returning to Germany two years later in 1911. End of the Wiki quote.
Considering Otto Frank's previous work experience in the US and the fact that his friend Nathan Strauss was willing to vouch for the Frank family makes it even less understandable why the US didn't give the Frank family visas for immigration.
I collect every documentary on Anne Frank and her family, so this fairly new production is a big enrichment for my growing collection.
