b&w, white border. Outdoors. Three children (Vera Voticky, Eva Kanturek and Milan Voticky) posing for the photograph at the market with a local Chinese resident. Two more Chinese men wearing fedoras are standing behind them. There are bananas and various other fruits and vegetables for sale on two long tables behind them. Narrative: Anka and Arnold Voticky arrived in Shanghai on the SS Conte Rosso, with their two children, Milan and Vera, on May 10, 1940. Their friends Lidka and Rudla Winter, along with their daughter Eva, came with them. The SS Conte Rosso began serving the Trieste–Bombay–Shanghai route in 1932, and thus became one of the major escape routes for the Jewish population of Germany and Austria as Shanghai was one of the few places that did not require paid emigration visas.
