‘Rescue’ Education Guide & Film

Thanks to generous support from the Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati, The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education is excited to announce its newest educational guide,

Rescue in the Philippines: Refuge from the Holocaust, to accompany the 30-minute classroom film version of the original one-hour series produced by 3Roads Communications.

The educational guide, geared toward students in grades seven and above and aligned with Common Core State Standards, includes classroom-ready activities, informational texts and primary documents which can be used to supplement a unit on the history of the Holocaust and World War II.

The educational guide and classroom version of the film can be purchased for $25 plus $5 for shipping. For more information on how to obtain a copy, please contact The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education, 513-487-3055.


The film tells the previously untold story of how the five Frieder brothers and Cincinnati businessmen, together with Manuel Quezon, the charismatic first president of the Philippines, Paul McNutt, US High Commissioner and former governor of Indiana (preparing for his own presidential campaign), and an ambitious Army Colonel named Dwight Eisenhower, helped 1,300 Jews escape the Nazis and immigrate to the Philippines.

Exciting news! Rescue in the Philippines will have a Presidential screening on August 7th in Manila, hosted by Philippine President Benigno Aquino. Rescue has been broadcast more than 1,800 times in the U.S., and was a 2014 qualifier for an Academy Award for Best Documentary.
