When most countries closed their doors, the Philippines opened its borders and welcomed 1,200 Jewish immigrants during World War II. This saved them from the European Holocaust which mercilessly and brutally murdered millions of their own people simply because they were Jewish.
Open Doors is a movie on the incredible journey of survival of the Jewish immigrants in Manila, Philippines before, during, and after World War II. Escaping the German atrocities in Europe, they came to Manila to seek refuge only to suffer Japanese cruelties. The movie will bring to light not only their sufferings in the interment camps but even more the hope and refuge they found among the Filipinos who stood alongside them during those horrific years.
