Update: There are a number of interesting video links about the “Chinese Schindler,” HO Feng-shan 何凤山 (surname=Ho, sometimes romanized as He). He was a Chinese Nationalist diplomat based in Europe who processed visas for Jews in Europe so they could escape to Shanghai  https://youtu.be/-9Gybo1Cl0s, and another video made by his daughter at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AW5k21o4ocM&fbclid=IwAR12NP2RR0mbNN2ALDA33EBAZ7aWf0epg2wBb43DChLqcdFXGt8aq8N1HKA

HO Feng Shan’s son was the late Monto Ho 何曼德, a very famous virologist at University of Pittsburgh. You can see Monto Ho at the far left in the photo at the 55:00 minute mark on the video link, at the inscription ceremony for the Righteous in Israel to honor his father’s efforts during WWII.  Monto HO was one of the key AIDS researchers in the 1980s and developer of interferon https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/postgazette/obituary.aspx?n=monto-ho&pid=168631424&fhid=22729
