China: Jews in Harbin

China Confidential picks up a Xinhua report on the visit to the northeastern city of Harbin by members of the U.S.-based Anti-Defamation League (ADL). “In the 1920s, Harbin was the largest Jewish community in the Far East, with a thriving economic and cultural life. Numerous Jewish relics of those days, including assembly halls, schools, banks and memorial parks, have been preserved. The ADL is the largest and most powerful of the so-called defense organizations that exert enormous influence over America's organized Jewish community. The others include the American Jewish Committee and the American Jewish Congress,” writes Confidential.
