Highland Park resident Bruce Mainzer unveils the story of his mother and aunt's escape from Nazi-occupied Prague in 1939 using forged documents. They were the first to use the scheme to travel to Paris and then to the United States. Upon hearing of the two sisters' successful escape, their friend used the same methods to assist other Jews to flee to British-occupied Palestine.
