Shanghai Ghetto (2002)

Dana Janklowicz-Mann, Amir Mann


From The New Yorker:
"A little-known and amazing chapter of Holocaust history-the plight of European Jewish refugees who fled to Japanese-occupied Shanghai in the late nineteen-thirties-gets an emotional documentary retelling. Five of the survivors of the impoverished Jewish community are interviewed with great care, and the filmmakers round out their tale with archival footage, letters, and photographs. All in all, a miraculous revival of the rich cultural life that developed amidst the squalor of a foreign, hostile land." -Bruce Diones
