Summary"This guide is divided into seven chapters that trace the history of the Jews in Shanghai. The first two chapters, Judenrein and Escape from Europe, explore the origins of this history in Nazi-occupied Europe. The third chapter Why Shanghai? Addresses the indifference of the world community during the first phase of the Holocaust. The final chapters... deal with life in Shanghai: social, cultural and political. Each chapter has a double-page spread, intended for student readers, which features background information, primary documents and photographs." Page 1
