With the rise of Nazism in the 1930s more than a thousand European Jews sought refuge in the Philippines, joining the small Jewish population of Manila. When the Japanese invaded the islands in 1941, the peaceful existence of the barely settled Jews filled with the kinds of uncertainties and oppression they thought they had left behind. Frank Ephraim, who fled to Manila with his parents, gathers the fascinating testimonies of thirty-six refugees (along with historical and archival records), who describe the difficult journey to Manila, the lives they built there upon their arrival, and the events surrounding the Japanese invasion.
