Shanghai Ghetto

2002 Rated NR 1hr 35m

Actor Martin Landau narrates this riveting documentary about Shanghai's little-known Jewish ghetto, settled in the 1930s by Jews who fled Nazi Germany. The filmmakers head to Shanghai with two ex-residents, who relate tales of life in the squalid enclave. Through interviews, letters, archival and modern-day footage, and family photos, the saga chronicles the survivors' escape, relocation, life in Shanghai and ultimate exodus to the United States.
