Good-bye Mr. Ghoya pamphlet

Document | Accession Number: 1998.49.1

Consists of one pamphlet entitled "Good-bye Mr. Ghoya," published in Shanghai in September 1945. The pamphlet was a denunciation of Sgt. Kano Ghoya, the Japanese ex-vice chief of the Stateless Refugees' Affairs Bureau in Shanghai, and includes seven cartoons by Friedrich Melchior. Ghoya adminsitered the Hongkou (Hongkew) district of Shanghai. During World War II, 20,000 Jewish refugees traveled to live in the Hongkou district, which became known as the Shanghai ghetto. The pamphlet ridicules Mr. Ghoya, labeling him "The King of the Jews" and mocks his cruelty.
