Summary:
The ship St. Louis left Nazi Germany on May 13, 1939 with over 900 Jewish refugees bound for Cuba. Cuba refused them entry, as did the United States. The ship returned to Europe where the refugees were accepted by Great Britain, France, Belgium and Netherlands. Archival footage and numerous interviews with survivors of the St. Louis voyage document this experience of refugees.
