Event Description

In WWII, Shanghai, one of two visa-free regions, absorbed approximately 25,000 Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany, taking in more European Jewish refugees than anyplace else on earth. Many of them came to see China as a dearly beloved second home. This Chinese-made documentary follows the refugees’ escape from Europe and documents their assimilation in this faraway city, a place fantastically different then anything they’ve known before. A screening of the film will be followed by a panel of Shanghai-based survivors who will recount their stories.
