3 ROADS MEETS WITH PHILIPPINE AMBASSADOR
3 Roads’ Cynthia Scott-Johnson and Russ Hodge met with the Philippine Ambassador to the United States, Jose L. Cuisia Jr., last week to update him on the progress made on the production of the company’s documentary, Rescue in the Philippines.
The documentary details the heroic rescue of more than 1,300 European Jews to the Philippines immediately prior to World War II by a combination of then-President Manuel Quezon, then- Col. Dwight Eisenhower, U.S. High Commissioner Paul McNutt, and the Frieder Brothers— cigar manufacturers from the U.S. and leaders of the Manila Jewish community.
Ambassador Cuisia pledged the continued support of the Philippines government for the production and distribution of the documentary.
