On Aug. 13, the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Press and the Center of Jewish Studies Shanghai under the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences published a collection of archives on Jewish refugees in China. The book disclosed some materials for the first time, including the Annals of Shanghai International Settlement collected by the Second Historical Archives of China, which has provided a new perspective for studies on the topic. To cope with the challenges of managing a large number of dispersed documents on the subject, the press and the center planned a database. Wang Jian, executive deputy director of the center, said construction of the database will be divided into three phases—first, media report during WWII as well as memoirs; second, documents collected in the rest of the world; and third, oral documents.
