Review: An Open Door: Holocaust Haven In The Philippines by Noel Izon

A dramatic story of rescue and friendship and how the Philippines was able to provide sanctuary to more than 1000 Jews fleeing Nazi Europe prior to 1941.

This documentary will take you to the history of the Philippines that was rarely taught in school. I've learned in this documentary film that at one time here in our county before  World War II, Manila has become the shelter of the German refugees that became victim of war in their country. This refugees has a lot of good words to say on  Filipinos about their hospitality and fond of memories that until now they still remembered. The technicality of this documentary is outstanding and I appreciate those archives footage during, before and after World War II that will let you experience and see Manila during 1940's This story should be heard as it will make you proud to become Filipino

My Verdict: 4/5
