ZERACH: A REFUGEE AND REMNANT IN THE HOLOCAUST
With the outbreak of the Second World War, young Zionist leader Zerach Wahrhaftig fled Warsaw, making his way to still neutral Lithuania. Fearing for the fate of thousands of Jews who also fled to Lithuania, Zerach mounted a relentless campaign to get Jews out of Europe. With the help of the Dutch consul Jan Zwartendijk and Japanese consul Chiune Sugihara, thousands of Jews set out for the Dutch colony of Curacao, Kobe Japan and on to Palestine, the United States, Surinam and Shanghai. Now in his nineties, Dr. Wahrhaftig returns to Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Belarus, China and Japan to recount his memories and to revisit the people and places that touched his life during those nightmarish years.
