Quezon's Game

Cinema

Directed by Matthew Rosen | 2020 | UK | 2h07 | Certificate 12A

In 1938, Philippine President Manuel Quezon, future US president Dwight Eisenhower, and several other notable figures set out to rescue Jewish refugees from the ghettos of Germany and Austria. What seems within their power at first, turns out to be fraught with astronomical obstacles. On top of this, Quezon must battle a relapse of tuberculosis. In his final days, Quezon asks the question “Could I have done more?” before recollecting one of the least known, but most uplifting stories in the holocaust history.
