A young Jewish refugee with her Chinese playmates. Shanghai, China (x)

Between 1933 and 1941, it is estimated that 20,000 Jews escaped persecution by fleeing to the Chinese port of Shanghai. Shanghai was one of the few places in the world that would accept Jewish refugees at this time, Japan being another.

i am furious that i am just now learning about this important fact.

Because it has nothing to do with the USA being the superhero and saving all the Jews

The U.S. was never a superhero that saved all the Jews. Our government turned away at least one shipload of almost a thousand Jewish refugees (MS St. Louis), leaving many of them to return to their deaths in Germany and other Nazi-occupied countries. Pretty horrible, right?
