Various materials related to the Jewish community in Shanghai.
Shanghai became a haven for Jews fleeing Nazi persecution because until August 1939 the International Settlement was an open city requiring no visa or other documents. The Japanese, who occupied the entire city of Shanghai as a result of its war with China, imposed immigration restrictions in August 1939. By that date more than 14,000 refugees had come to Shanghai. On November 15, 1942, the idea of a restricted ghetto was approved, and announced on February 18, 1943. All stateless refugees were restricted to a designated area in the Hongkew district. The ghetto was finally liberated officially on September 3, 1945
