Rescue in the Philippines, Refuge from the Holocaust

San Francisco, CA
The documentary tells the story of how the Frieder brothers, Cincinnati businessmen manufacturing cigars in pre-World War II Philippines, together with Manuel Quezon, the first Philippine president, US High Commissioner Paul McNutt and Col. Dwight Eisenhower, helped 1200 Jews escape the Nazis by immigrating to the Philippines. It’s the “Schindler’s List” that nobody knows about!
