Subject

Battle of Shanghai

Description

This photograph depicts the swell of refugees seeking refuge in the French Concession after Shanghai was turned into a battlefield in the early stages of the Sino-Japanese War. The French authorities, overwhelmed by the masses of refugees decided to close the gates to the French Concession. A solution, however, was found by Father Jacquinot, a Jesuit priest who negotiated a demilitarised safe zone in the city to host refugees.
