[Autom. eng. transl.] A chapter in the history of the Shoah almost unknown in Italy. Between 1933 and 1941, Shanghai opened its doors to over 18,000 Jews, mostly Germans and Austrians, who tried to save themselves from Nazi persecutions in Europe. In the face of immigration restrictions imposed by most states, Shanghai was an exception. The "Paris of the East" became the setting for a story of difficult yet successful integration: thousands of refugees found asylum within the Hongkou ghetto where they led an existence in harmony with the local population. At the end of the Second World War, the number of survivors was so high as to make people speak of the "Shanghai miracle".
