Sunday Morning Brunch with Gao Bei and Steve Hochstadt

End Date: 12/2/2012End Time: 11:30 AM

Event Description:
China, Japan, and the 'Shanghai Jews' During World War II
Gao will present the Chinese Nationalist government's relationship with Jewish Holocaust refugees and explore the fascinating story of how three Jewish settlement plans launched by the Chinese government and Jewish leaders in the United States evolved. Hochstadt will describe the daily relationships between Jews and Japanese, both official and neighborly, based on interviews with former refugees. Although the Japanese were allies of the Nazis, Hochstadt asserts Japanese in Shanghai treated Jewish refugees with respect and even friendship. Gao disagrees. Join us for a lively debate.
