20,000+ European Jews survived the Holocaust by escaping to Shanghai, China. Sonia Milrod’s parents were among them. Her father, Jerry Milrod, fled Lodz, Poland when the German’s invaded and made it to Vilno, Lithuania. From there, he, his brother, and several friends were among over a thousand who made to it Kobe, Japan based on a transit visa signed by Chiune Sugihara, and then to Shanghai.
This program will be run virtually through Zoom.
