Open Door: Rescue In The Philippines. Jewish Refuge From The Holocaust Part I

Once again the Asean Culture Group will present to you Controversial Documentaries.

A Catholic, A Protestant and a great family of Jews come together and saved thousand of lives, gave people the opportunity to escape, to live, develop and create a future for themselves.

"It`s one thing to sit around in card table and talk about worsen situations even a dire situation. But its quite another to actually take some action. And i think that`s why this is a story for all time." Ms. Eisenhower, Pres. D. Eisenhowersdaughter.

" It is my hope indeed my expectations that the people of the Philippines will have in the future every reason to be glad that when the time of need came their country was willing to extend a Hand of Welcome. " President Manuel L. Quezon.

They just do the right thing and responded to a crisis in the right way regardless of the fact it wasnt necessary great to their careers as President or a representative of the Military or even for a Cigar Maker.
This was new to me and wasnt taught in school maybe because its so controversial. Am quite surprised that Philippines saved thousands of Jews at that time what i knew was we have a lot of refugees before from Vietnam and other asian countries coz i saw them myself and talked to them at the Refugee center in Paranaque when i visited my uncle at his home.

Please see this documentary!
