Japanese, Nazis & Jews : the Jewish refugee community of Shanghai, 1938-1945 by David Kranzler( Book )

27 editions published between 1976 and 1991 in 4 languages and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1938-41 some 17,000 Jewish refugees from Germany, Austria, and Poland reached Shanghai, then under Japanese control. Ch. 7 (pp. 169-266), "Japanese Policy vis-à-vis the Jews", explains Japan's unusual behavior in opening the door to Jewish refugees. Describes the influence of the so-called "experts on Jewish affairs" in Japan and their unique approach to antisemitism - to make use of alleged Jewish wealth and influence on behalf of Japan's "New Order". This approach lasted until America's entry into the war when it became unfeasible and Nazi propaganda gained more influence. Discusses immigration restrictions imposed in August 1939, Nazi antisemitic propaganda, and the establishment of a ghetto in 1943 under German instigation. Japan's attitude towards Jews evolved from favorable to highly antagonistic, blaming the Jews for all economic and social ills and for a conspiracy to overthrow the government and dominate the media, aid the communists, and halt Japanese development

Holocaust hero : the untold story and vignettes of Solomon Schonfeld, an extraodinary British Orthodox Rabbi who rescued 4000 Jews during the Holocaust by David Kranzler( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most remarkable, but unheralded heroes of the Holocaust was Solomon Schonfeld, a young British rabbi who personally rescued thousands of Jews during the tragic decade of 1938-1948. Rabbi of a small Orthodox congregation and pioneer of the day school movement in London, England, Schonfeld was inspired by his former teacher, Rabbi Michael Ber Weissmandl, to embark on rescue work. Under the auspices of the Chief Rabbi's Religious Emergency Council, an organization he created with the approval of Chief Rabbi Joseph P. Hertz, his future father-in-law, this dynamic and charismatic personality single-handedly brought to England, several thousand youngsters, rabbis, teachers, ritual slaughterers and other religious functionaries ignored by Britain's secular Jewish establishment. Schonfeld provided his "charges" with kosher homes, Jewish education and jobs. He also created unique mobile synagogues - the first to serve the spiritual and physical needs of the survivors in the liberated areas. On the other hand, his failures include his unsuccessful request for His Majesty's Government to heed Weissmandl's plea to bomb Auschwitz. This fascinating work consists of a biography, with a focus on his rescue efforts, including his struggles with the assimilationist Anglo-Jewish leadership, as well as a series of 40 vignettes by individuals rescued by this unheralded hero."--Jacket
Heroine of rescue : the incredible story of Recha Sternbuch who saved thousands from the Holocaust by Joseph Friedenson( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and German and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A biography of Sternbuch (1905-1971), who was born and raised in Antwerp as the daughter of Rabbi Mordechai Rottenberg, Chief Rabbi of the Orthodox community. Following her marriage to Rabbi Yitzchok Sternbuch, they went to live in St. Gallen, Switzerland. From 1938 their home was open to Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi persecution. Recha also set up a rescue network to help Jews cross the border illegally and then go on to other countries. Notes that Saly Mayer, head of the Schweizerischer Israelitischer Gemeindebund, actually hindered the rescue work. In spring 1939, Recha was arrested and imprisoned briefly for aiding illegal immigrants. In 1941 all charges were dropped, since she also helped Jews obtain visas to other countries, which was in the interest of the Swiss officials. The Sternbuchs then began to send food and medical supplies to Jews in the Polish ghettos and to Jewish refugees in Shanghai, setting up the Hilfsverein für Jüdische Flüchtlinge in Shanghai (HIJEFS). After the war, through this organization, they helped survivors in DP camps, saved Jewish children who had been hidden in non-Jewish homes, and provided aid for many rabbis and Jewish scholars who had survived

They called him Mike : Reb Elemelech Tress, his era, hatzalah, and the building of an American orthodoxy by Yonason Rosenblum( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pt. 3 (pp. 232-306), "The War Years, " relates the involvement of Elemelech Gavriel Tress (1909-1965), through his work in the Agudath Israel Refugee and Immigration Division from late 1938, in efforts to obtain affidavits and procure U.S. emergency visas which saved thousands of European Jews. There was a prevailing anti-immigrant sentiment in the U.S. in the 1930s-early 1940s, in which antisemitism played a significant role. Discusses the indifference of State Department officials to the plight of European Jews and their tendency to set obstacles in the path of prospective immigrants, the general apathy of the American public, and the almost total absence of press coverage of the Holocaust in the U.S

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Memoirs of Sternbuch (née Eisenzweig), an Orthodox Jew from Warsaw. Pp. 63-138 describe her experiences in the Holocaust, including the Nazi occupation and life in the ghetto. Sternbuch and several other young women who had been students at the Bais Yaakov Seminary conducted secret classes in Jewish studies for girls in the ghetto. She also taught at Janusz Korczak's orphanage until July 1942, when she received Paraguayan passports from her future husband, Eli; she and her mother were then incarcerated in the Pawiak prison. In January 1943 they were transported to the Vittel internment camp in France, where Sternbuch also organized classes for Jewish girls. In December 1943 Paraguay rescinded recognition of the passports issued to the Jews, and most of the Jews in Vittel were deported. Sternbuch and her mother escaped and went into hiding until their liberation in September 1944. She married after the war and, with her husband, helped Jewish survivors in France and then in Switzerland. Pp. 175-243 contain two essays by Kranzler on Jewish life in Poland before the war
