Marion Kaplan speaks about the experience of refugees from Nazi Germany in Portugal, the port of last resort once Hitler invaded France. She examines the daily lives and feelings of those trapped in Lisbon for lack of visas and ship tickets but anxious to leave since the Portuguese government did not want them.
