Jewish schoolbook

Object | Accession Number: 2009.106.2

Textbook used by 10 year old Manfred Lobel in the Shanghai Jewish Youth Association School (SJYA). In 1940, Manfred fled to Shanghai from Berlin, Germany, with his parents, Gustav and Dora, and 14 year old brother Siegfried due to the Nazi persecution of Jews. Since his parents were born in Romania, exit visas for the United States did not seem to be an option because of the high quotas. In 1940, the family received permits to leave Germany for Shanghai. American troops entered the city on September 3, 1945. The family emigrated to the US in 1949.
