with Weijia Li, Clinical Professor & Director of the Global Higher Education Master’s Program at UW–Madison

Event Details

Tuesday, October 19, 2021
6 p.m.
From 1938 to 1941, more than 17,000 German and Austrian Jewish refugees fled from the Nazi terror to Shanghai, China. The refugees’ hopes to transfer to the US were dashed after Pearl Harbor. Weijia Li will examine how the German-Jewish refugee community in Shanghai thrived despite the harshness of life in exile and during the war and how its members looked forward to a new life in America.
