The Double Crossing: The Voyage of the St. Louis
On May 13, 1939, the luxury liner St. Louis sailed from Hamburg, Nazi Germany, with over 900 Jewish refugees on board, bound for freedom in Havana, Cuba.  At first, they felt that they were on "a vacation cruise into freedom." Their happiness was, however, short-lived.  The Cuban government reneged on its promise and refused them entry into the country.  Although 734 of the refugees held quota numbers for eventual admission into the United States, permission for entry was refused.  Archival footage, plus numerous interviews with survivors of the ship, educate us about the past as well as sensitize us to the plight of all refugees, wherever they may be.

"The program combines in a masterful production newsreel footage, still photos, music, and interview segments...woven together. I highly recommend [it]."-Video Rating Guide
