Genners,

A friend is anxious to locate living survivors of the Mir Yeshiva during its sojourn in Shanghai. Here's his message:

I am looking for a group for "Survivors of the Mir Yeshiva in Shanghai" as I am seeking vital information about my father and need to locate someone who might have known him during that period. Any information on how to navigate through social media in searching for this would be GREATLY appreciated.<
Can anyone identify such a group?

Thanks.
