In the first half of the 20th century, no incident was more representative of both the United States’ controversial immigration policy and the Cuban government’s staggering apathy than the island nation’s refusal in 1939 to allow 937 passengers on the MS St. Louis, most of them Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany, to land in Havana. Most of the refugees failed to find safe harbor and were forced to return to the terrifying Europe of Hitler’s time. Harbor of Broken Glass was inspired by this historical event.
