In 1939, Germany's Hamburg-America Line announced a voyage from Germany to Cuba. 937 people, the vast majority being Jews, signed up for the opportunity to escape Nazi Germany. Unbeknownst to the passengers, the visas they purchased were from a corrupt Cuban director of immigration, and they were invalid. Upon arrival in Havana, only 28 people were allowed to disembark, while the rest remained on board for weeks as they sailed to Florida, and eventually Canada, searching for safe haven. Sadly the ship returned to Antwerp after more than a month at sea. Forced back under Nazi rule as the low countries fell, it is estimated that approximately 250 of the refugees died in the extermination camps in occupied Poland.

The Shoes of the Fisherman

Ukrainian Archbishop Kiril …
Ukrainian Archbishop Kiril Lakota is set free after twenty years as a political prisoner in Siberia. He is brought to Rome by Father David Telemond, a troubled young priest who befriends him. Once at the Vatican, he is immediately given an audience with the Pope, who elevates him to Cardinal Priest. The world is on the brink of war due to a Chinese-Soviet feud made worse by a famine caused by trade restrictions brought against China by the U.S. When the Pontiff suddenly dies, Lakota's genuine character and unique life experience move the College of Cardinals to elect him as the new Pope. But Pope Kiril I must now deal with his own self-doubt, the struggle of his friend Father Telemond, who is under scrutiny for his beliefs, and find a solution to the crisis in China.

During the Cold War, …
During the Cold War, operative Alec Leamas (Richard Burton) loses his last informant in East Berlin when he is shot while crossing the border. Leamas travels to London to meet his chief, Control (Cyril Cusack). They have a meeting, and Control asks him to lure the East Germans to make them believe that their Agent, Hans-Dieter Mundt (Peter van Eyck) is a double Agent, and use Jewish Agent Fiedler (Oskar Werner), who is under the command of Mundt and hates him, to expose Mundt to get rid of him. Leamas poses as an alcoholic potential defector without any pension who finds a job in a library. Soon he becomes the lover of Nancy "Nan" Perry (Claire Bloom), who works with him in the library and belongs to the British Communist Party. Leamas is arrested for fighting in a store, and when he is discharged from jail, an East German Agent recruits him and sends him to the Netherlands. He is then taken to East Germany, where Leamas meets Fiedler, who uses his information to accuse Mundt. Afterward, Mundt is put before a tribunal, but out of the blue, his attorney summons a mysterious witness. Who might be this witness?
