The Jewish Hospital

The arrival of Jews also brought the development of science and technology for Shanghai City, which was just at the starting point of modernization. Many of those Jewish refugees were the elites of society, and they possessed the advanced knowledge and technologies at that time. They established schools and hospitals after arriving in Shanghai, and taught the Chinese some cultural and scientific knowledge from the West. This is a Shanghai hospital built by Jews, and the Chinese nurse in the picture was looking after Jewish patients.
