Original Woodcut for the Shanghai Journal

 Translation of the German text:
The 18. February 1946!
“So that no-one may forget….”
Emigrants in Shanghai in front of the Wayside police station queue up to obtain special passes, which will authorize them to leave the district, from Mr. Kano Ghoya, “the king of the Jews”, as he called himself. The group queuing from the left expect long-term passes, the ones on the right, day passes, and the group in the middle queues up for licenses. The flag standing out from the police building indicates preliminary air-raid alarm.

The woodcut is by D.L.Bloch in the collection of George Moore. Refer to George Moore’s story, “The Adventures of George Moore”, in the “Book of Life” section, a wonderful account of a Jewish refugee in Shanghai.
