Summary"The Shanghai Jewish Community Oral History Project was directed by Steve Hochstadt, former Professor of History at Bates College. The project collected oral histories of surviving Shanghai Jews, focusing especially on the German-speaking refugees. The interviews showed not only how they survived, but also how they created a community of synagogues, cafes, theaters, schools, and newspapers. The first interviews were done on a trip to China in spring 1989. The rest were taped in Florida, California, Berlin, Vienna, Salzburg, Chicago, and other places. Note that biographical information for each interviewee is correct only up to the date of the interview." —Bates College
