Harbor from the Holocaust aired on September 8 at 10 p.m. on WUCF. The film chronicles the story of nearly 20,000 Jewish refugees who fled Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II, to the Chinese port city of Shanghai. Exploring the extraordinary relationship of these Jews and their adopted city of Shanghai, and in tragic contrast to those who could not escape, this is a Holocaust story of life.
