There's a good film on that, called Sugihara. I used to play it for my university students when I taught in Japan. It was a great way to get my students to connect in some way with what was happening in far away Europe and Nazi Germany history.

In general, most Asian students are understandably apathetic to European events, just as much as European students are apathetic to major historical events in Asia.

I think some still stay in the Philippines and others moved in Israel. I know other Jewish descendants moved in Samar and glad to know that in time of need Israel is there to help our country during Haiyan (Yolanda) typhoon.

We're glad that when it was our time that needs help, they are one of those nations that stood up and lend a helping hand when Haiyan (Yolanda) landed the Philippines.
