00:01:11 NARRATOR: With the coming of the Second World War...
00:01:14 ... many eyes in imprisoned Europe turned hopefully, or desperately...
00:01:19 ... toward the freedom of the Americas.
00:01:21 Lisbon became the great embarkation point.
00:01:24 But not everybody could get to Lisbon directly.
00:01:28 And so a torturous, roundabout refugee trail sprang up.
00:01:33 Paris to Marseilles...
00:01:40 ... across the Mediterranean to Oran.
00:01:50 Then, by train or auto or foot, across the rim of Africa...
00:01:55 ... to Casablanca in French Morocco.
00:01:58 Here, the fortunate ones, through money or influence or luck...
00:02:02 ... might obtain exit visas and scurry to Lisbon.
00:02:06 And from Lisbon to the New World.
00:02:09 But the others wait in Casablanca.
00:02:13 And wait and wait...
00:02:16 ... and wait.
00:02:28 To all officers:
00:02:29 Two German couriers carrying official documents murdered on train from Oran.
00:02:34 Murderer and possible accomplices headed for Casablanca.
