The Port of Last Resort: The Story of Shanghai’s Jewish Refugees (1998 Documentary)
Between 1938 to 1941, nearly 20,000 European Jewish refugees fled their Nazi-occupied homelands for Shanghai, their “port of last resort” as they sought a safe haven when all other borders were closed. This evocative documentary tells the story of the Shanghai’s Jewish refugees through compelling interviews with former refugees, never-before-seen home movies, the intimacy of letters from refugees to family back home, and archival footage. Filmmakers Joan Grossman and Paul Rosdy spent four years researching archival material on three continents, going through thousands of documents to reveal the world of the Jewish refugees and of 1940s Shanghai.
