Walking Under Palms
The story of Margot and Lotte Cassel, two cousins known as 'The Cassel Twins' who fled Nazi Germany together with their parents to the Philippines, the only country to open its gates to them. To their disappointment, shortly after there arrival, they found themselves at the war front again, this time in Asia. Now at 90, the two meet for the last time to recall and tell the story of there past and the story of the Jews of the Philippines, a story that has not yet been told.
