Join us, along with a special guest from the Embassy of the Philippines, for a screening of a documentary that tells the story of how 1,200 Jews escaped the Nazis and immigrated to the Philippines with the help of an unlikely coalition: five cigar-making brothers from Cincinnati; Manuel Quezon; the charismatic first president of the Philippines; Paul McNutt, U.S. High Commissioner; and an ambitious U.S. Army Colonel named Dwight Eisenhower.

Presented by the Jewish Federation of Ottawa in cooperation with the City of Ottawa and Embassy of the Philippines.
Light refreshments to follow.
