Conference Proceeding: Jews in China

A Jewish presence in China can be traced back to the Tang period in the 8th century. In modern history, the rise of anti-Semitism in Russia and Eastern Europe in early 19th century and the Holocaust propelled waves of Jews to North and South China. These historical events have been researched and updated by Jewish people ever since their gradual departure from China in the beginning of the 1950s. This presentation provides details on Chinese records of Jewish "guest dwelling" in China.
