The Last Kings of Shanghai by Jonathan Kaufman unearths a hidden history of the investments of two Jewish families who form an unexpected foundation for modern-day China. Both the Kadoorie and Sassoon families fled persecution in Iraq, escaping to China. Elias Sassoon arrived in Shanghai in 1850, trading opium. Elly Kadoorie settled in Hong Kong in 1880, as a Sassoon employee but went independent investing in electric power. On the eve of World War II, the families collaborated to procure visas for refugees sheltering over 18,000 Jews in Shanghai. The 1949 founding of the Republic of China saw the assets of both families seized. By the 1960s, a new generation of Kadoories returned to Hong Kong and from their investments became billionaires. The financial and cultural legacy of these families for today’s China is significant. Kaufman succeeds in both presenting a topic with no previous in-depth coverage and analyzing the choices of another era and how they echo the ethical dilemmas of today.

Webinars moderated by diversity and equity consultant and Shoreline resident Kevin P. Henry:

  • The Effects of Racialized Trauma (20 minutes) – Interview with Tulane University professor Estilla Lightfoot, an expert on racism-induced PTSD and Intergenerational Trauma. Racialized Trauma, anxiety and various forms of PTSD disproportionally affect People of Color. Mental health professionals need to be aware of this when treating clients and patients from diverse backgrounds and who also have varying lived experiences. When there is more effective, culturally competent, and empathetic treatment, the patient and client in addition to their community benefits.
