When I moved to World War II

A few months ago, for the third time since my arrival in the summer, it was movie-time on my block. The Chinese film-makers were creating a mini-series about a story I’d never heard.

Ho Feng-Shan was a Chinese diplomat in Vienna from 1938-1940. Many countries refused to take Jewish people desperate to leave Europe, but Ho Feng-Shan provided a visa to any Jewish person who applied—even those who had no intention of going to Shanghai but who simply needed a visa to get out.

He saved over 3000 lives.
