Ancestor Hunt has published World War ll era Shanghai newspapers online.
Shanghai became a haven for fleeing Jews during World War ll because of
their lenient visa requirements and they accepted thousands of Jewish
refugees.

While the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum built a database that contained the
name, occupation and address for many of the refugees, that database is no
longer available. It might be found by using the Way Back Machine ( Internet
Archive) . If you do find it on their please share that with us.

However, there are some Shanghai newspapers written by and for Jews that
were digitized and are available online. Some are in English and most are
in German. Best to look at both Internet Archive (https://archive.org/ ) and
the Leo Baeck Institute (https://www.lbi.org/ ) .

The article in Ancestor Hunt has 10 links to newspapers:
