Pray for Peace

Although World War II has already dissipated in the sky of history, the world today is obviously not so peaceful. Regional wars rise one after another, and terrorism inexorably lingers on. Born in Berlin in 1907, Rosalia Shoshana Tuetzer had taken refuge in Shanghai, where she received relief and also worked as a tailor. She went to the United States and settled there in 1947, now living in Miami, Florida as the only Jewish refugee more than 100 years old alive we know. In the picture is Rosalia Shoshana Tuetzer praying world in front of the monument in the residence of Jewish refugees during World War II, hoping that people do not forget the hideousness of war and cherish the current peace.
