Refugees from Nazi-occupied Europe recall their escape to Havana and the challenges they faced in an exotic and unfamiliar land. Based on survivor accounts, this documentary conjures a dramatic view of 1940s Havana – an era at once tumultuous, heartbreaking, and intoxicating – to reveal an immigration success story. With discussion and dessert. (2017, English with closed captions, 46 minutes)
