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 Germans 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.
Generously sponsored by Margaret and Michael Valentine and presented in partnership with the Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center and Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage.
