Margot, Max & Lotte were just children when they underwent persecution for being Jews. To escape certain death, the three took a chance to liberation through the open-doors policy of then Philippine US Commonwealth president, Manuel L. Quezon. The three called the Philippines their home, together with 1,300 refugees from Hitler’s war against the Jews. However, challenges still came their way when the Philippine government fell under the Japanese occupation. With disorder and unrest in the Philippines, they leave again in order to rebuild their lives. They live to tell their tale of gratitude to the Filipino people as the last surviving Manilaners.
