Description Information
   [93] ff., 194:120 mm., usual age and use staining, nice margins, one f. in the center of book torn with loss. A good copy bound in the original pale blue half cloth boards, rubbed, color faded.
   Daily and Sabbath prayer book following the rites of Habad in the original binding. From 1933 to 1941, China accepted over 30,000 Jewish refugees coming from war torn Europe. China contained over 25,000 Jewish refugees when the Pacific War erupted in the latter part of 1941. In July 1942, Colonel Josef Meisinger of the Gestapo arrived in Shanghai and put forth the “Final Solution in Shanghai” to Japanese authorities. Although the plan was not put into effect due to various reasons, the Japanese proclaimed “The Designated Area for Stateless Refugees”, ordering all Jews who had arrived since 1937 to move into the area within a month. The Jews remained within the confined area in a perilous position for nearly four years, threatened by execution. In the above ghetto the world famous Yeshivas Mir flourished with many students studying torah for long hours. In their haste to escape the European mayhem all books were left behind, necessitating the printing of the current lot.
