Scenes from a Shanghai refugee camp, by Schiff, December 1937


Last week, reading and taking notes for a story about the Battle of Shanghai at the UC Berkeley library, I was struck by these sketches of a Chinese refugee camp, the camp school, Chinese nurses in a hospital, and a Chinese woman working in support of the war effort, all drawn by Schiff, the renowned Shanghai cartoonist, that appeared in the China Weekly Review toward the end of 1937. Enjoy.
