Diplomatic Rescue: Shanghai as a Means of Escape from the Holocaust (Part 1 of 3)

Resource Type: 

Ho Manli speaks about her father, Dr. Ho Feng Shan, a Chinese diplomat in Vienna from 1937 to 1940. As Hitler marched into the city and anti-Semitism erupted, Dr. Ho took decisive action to save Jewish lives by issuing visas to Shanghai. Also joining in the discussion are Dr. Lotte Marcus, psychologist, who received a visa from Dr. Ho, and Rene Willdorf, who escaped from Berlin.
