Learn the story of Jewish refugees in Shanghai

In a Holocaust story of hope, 20,000 Jews find refuge in Shanghai during World War II. The film explores the relationship of the refugees and their host city, and the survivors who carried on the traditions that would have been consigned to oblivion. “Harbor from the Holocaust” airs on Tuesday, September 8 at 9 p.m.

WATCH: Harbor from the Holocaust

The one-hour film explores the extraordinary relationship with the refugees, known as “Shanghailanders,” had with their adopted city, through the bitter years of Japanese occupation 1937-1945 and the Chinese civil war that followed. Through personal recollections, interviews with historians, archival footage and music, the documentary tells the story of a group of people who, in tragic contrast with those who could not escape, were given a second chance.
