Overview

Shanghai was the only port open to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany/ Austria in the 1930s, though the Japanese occupation and later American bombings hardly made it a safe haven. These 23 first- person accounts by survivors who now live mostly in the US, a sample of those collected by a former journalist (and archived at Wayne State U.) relates a fascinating, little-known chapter of the Holocaust. It includes introductory remarks by former US Secretary of the Treasury Michael Blumenthal, who was among these 20,000 refugees, a glossary, map, and photos.
