Abstract:

Had it not been for the courage and humanity of some of the world's foreign service diplomats, many more people would have perished during Hitler's surge across Europe. This film presents the stories of four government officials who refused to follow orders so that they could save the lives of several thousand Jews: Aristides de Sousa Mendes of Portugal ; Harry Bingham IV, U.S. vice consul in Marseilles ; Carl Lutz, Swiss diplomat in Hungary ; and Georg Ferdinand Duckwitz, German attaché in Denmark. By disobeying orders, secretly issuing visas, falsifying papers, and cutting backroom deals each of these brave men rescued desperate people from Hitler's clutches.
