Summary
Focuses on Turkey's role in rescuing Turkish and European Jews from Nazi persecution. This documentary recounts the story of how Turkey recruited the talented men and women Hitler discarded to revamp Turkish sciences, architecture, music, medicine, legal education, and art; how Turkish diplomats who saved a lot of Jewish lives from the Holocaust in France and Rhodes, put their own lives at risk rescuing Jews of Turkish origin; how the Yishuv - Jews from Pre-State Israel - daringly used Turkey as a base to rescue Jews; the tragic sinking of the Struma Refugee Ship with 760 refugees aboard and the odyssey of its lone survivor, David Stoliar; how Monsignor Roncalli (who later became Pope John XXIII), then the Apostolic Delegate in Istanbul, worked with delegates of the Yishuv and how his experiences there later inspired him to change Catholic teaching towards Jews; the infamous "Jews for Sale" deal - the attempt in 1944 to trade one million Jews for 10,000 trucks.
