Shanghai sanctuary : a story of survival in the midst of the Holocaust for twenty-five thousand Jews who fled to Shanghai, China / by Ira Epstein.
This thesis focuses on the safety provided by the city of Shanghai, China, to twenty-five thousand Jews who escaped the Holocaust by going there. Among this group was the Mir Yeshiva of Mir, Poland, who numbered four hundred students and their teachers. This was the only Yeshiva to survive intact in Europe during the Holocaust. Their survival is a story of courage, tenacity and hope. They immigrated to the United States from Shanghai, China, in 1946. During the entire time they spent in Shanghai, Mir Yeshiva and the other Jewish refugees were under the control of the Japanese occupation forces.
