Law & Society: The Jews of Shanghai

International Conference in Shanghai, China
Monday, June 1 - Wednesday, June 3, 2015
 
 
The history of the Jews of Shanghai is an intriguing story, but it is a story that is not well known in the United States. Baghdadi Jews came to Shanghai in the mid-19th century and prospered; Russian Jews fleeing the Czar and then the Bolshevik Revolution emigrated to China in the early 20th century, coming to Shanghai in large numbers in the 1930s after the Japanese takeover of Manchuria; and approximately 18,000 Jews from Europe sought refuge from Nazi Germany in the 1930’s and early 1940’s to the open port of Shanghai. The conference will closely examine this history from a number of perspectives, including, law, literature, and sociology.
