Notes
Propaganda card about Friedrich Melchior. Copy of typed identity card, including photograph, stamped every month from April to August 1945 with red ink. The back has a printed diatribe against Mr. Ghoya, Japanese official of the Stateless Refugees’ Affairs Bureau, signed by Friedrich Melchior in black ink and dated Sept. 1945. Narrative: Kanoh Ghoya was the Japanese official in charge of issuing 1-3 month passes allowing Jews out of Hongkew into surrounding districts. He liked to call himself "King of the Jews"; many refugees called him "The Monkey". Ghoya was a very short, unpredictable man who spoke English well and had once been chief of police in Kyushu. He could fly into a rage and often beat or threatened those who applied for a pass; on other days, he would play with refugee children or attend their soccer matches. He was the most visible oppressor of Jews in Shanghai. Friedrich (called Fritz) Melchior was a refugee artist who made several caricatures of Ghoya.
