China Produces Medals Commemorating "Shanghai Ghetto", A Temporary Home for Jews Who Escaped the Holocaust

FSWC Reports:


The Shanghai Mint has struck a limited edition series of Shanghai Memory silver and gold medals to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the Designated Area For Stateless Refugees, commonly known as the Shanghai Ghetto or Hongkew Ghetto.

That area in Shanghai became a temporary home for an estimated 20,000 Jewish refugees who safely escaped from the Nazi onslaught during the World War II Holocaust.
