Event Details

Description

By the outbreak of World War II, Shanghai sheltered more Jewish refugees than any other place in the world. This presentation will explore the history of Jewish Shanghai from the turn of the 20th century through the creation in 1943 of the “Restricted Sector for Stateless Refugees” known as the Shanghai Ghetto in the Hongkew district of Japanese-occupied Shanghai. This is a story that many Americans do not know but one that is taught throughout China.

Helene Herman, who holds a B.A. in Anthropology from New York University, is a lecturer for Nova’s Lifelong Learning Institute, FIU’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and FAU Osher Lifelong Learning on a variety of historical and cultural topics. She was previously President of a 400-member lifelong learning SLED Club in Florida that evolved from Brandeis Women, and has recently assumed the position of Executive Vice President of Sisterhood at Temple Beth Torah Sha’aray Tzedek in Tamarac, Florida.

$5.00 per registration.

A Chinese New Year gift pack is included with each registration.
