Shanghai Ghetto is a 2002 documentary film produced
and directedbyDana Janklowicz and Amir Mann - and narrated by Martin Landau. The film was awarded the Audience
Choice Award and the Human Rights Award at the 2002 Santa Barbara International
A gentle loving accounting
of 20,000 mostly German Jews who were able to escape the Nazi's before World War II started and go to Shanghai, China, where
the Japanese were in control of that city. Once Pearl Harbor occurred, the Jews, along with the Brits and other 'whites',
were once again considered 'the enemy.'
This documentary affirms that humanity is precious and we must share
the past, painful as it is, to avoid its repetition.
