Conference Proceeding: Jewish Refugees in Shanghai: Curating Personal Artifacts

Based on my experiences curating a portion of the exhibit Jewish Refugees in Shanghai (1933-1941) at UCLA in Fall 2013, I will present a brief history of the Shanghai Ghetto, an overview of the exhibition, and my work with Shanghailanders who live in Los Angeles, contributed artifacts to the exhibit, and participated in the symposium. Local Shanghailanders will present 5 minute “stories” of their experiences. Questions can be directed to me and to them in a discussion afterwards. There will be artifacts to display.
