Rescue in the Philippines

CET and ThinkTV are excited to announce that we’ll be airing Rescue in the Philippines: Refuge from the Holocaust this week. This previously untold story tells the tale of how more than 1,300 Jews escaped the Nazis by immigrating to the Philippines.


The rescue was orchestrated by Manuel Quezon, the charismatic first president of the Philippines; Paul McNutt, US High Commissioner and former governor of Indiana; an ambitious US Army Colonel named Dwight Eisenhower; and the Frieder brothers, Cincinnati-based businessmen manufacturing 2-for-a-nickel cigars in pre-WWII Manila.


Here are the broadcast times for this one-hour documentary:

Sunday, April 28, at 7pm on CET

Sunday, April 28, at 11pm on ThinkTV16

Sunday, May 5, at 10pm on ThinkTV14
