In the years from 1937 to 1941, as the horrors of Nazism swept over Europe, nearly 20,000 European Jewish refugees fled to Shanghai, China where most would spend almost a decade in exile. The emigration to Shanghai was, for most refugees, a last resort at a time when borders around Europe were closed. Shanghai’s status as a free port not requiring entry papers, offered a much-needed safe haven to those who were willing and able to make the perilous voyage. This remarkable documentary film reveals a lost world when Shanghai was the Far East’s most illustrious city. Extraordinary images of refugees and uncommon views of Chinese life create a compelling vantage point for understanding this story of survival.
