This chapter presents “And So It Begins...” (1941), an essay written by Yehoshua Rapoport shortly after his arrival in Shanghai. It is at first glance an optimistic statement about Jewish life, despite the indifferent welcome he and his fellow refugees received. In this essay, Rapoport sees his own function and that of others like him in Shanghai as contributing to a revival and of bringing new life.
