As I was working my way through the bookcases, I came upon a book my father had brought home from China, which I hadn't looked at yet. This was The Jews in Shanghai. It had a grand total of three paragraphs of background matter, but pages of photos of the folks who immigrated to Shanghai over the century or so. The book was a bit poignant, but the title I found a bit telling: "in" rather than "of". Even after some generations of residency, the Chinese still viewed them as outsiders. It's a bit sad to realize that.

I think I have something similar on my amazon to-read list. One of my lists! I'll have to go poking around to find it.

About Jews in China? Or foreigners in Shanghai?

Jews in Shanghai, refugees from the Holocaust. I found it several years ago and put it on my list, and then amazon decided to screw around with my account, so I'm not sure how to find it. I ~should have two lists going, with full shopping carts, but I can only find one.

But if I locate it, I'll give you a heads-up.
