My name is Eva Zelig. In my television career I've received many awards, including an Emmy, for programs I produced for major broadcast networks from ABC to PBS. All that time I told other people's stories. Now, I'm producing a documentary to tell my own -- the story of my family and of others who fled Europe escaping the Nazi terror to find refuge in an unlikely destination: Ecuador.

An Unknown Country is an independent film that will tell the story of those who were able to reach the shores of this small South American country -- barely known at the time. Featuring first hand accounts and archival material, the story will open a window on the exiles' perilous escape and difficult adjustment as they remade their lives in an unknown land.
