I am running a project of searching the Shanghai
lost Jewish tombstones. I will be happy to send you
the details about this project. So far we found about
50 tombstones and we know of at least 20 more. Among
them I found few Sepharadi - Baghdadian tombstones
Rima Moses born India 1879, died Shanghai 1932
Solomon Reuben Minny, born Hong Kong 1866, died Shanghai
Sara Delbourgo, passed away in 1931
Albert Eduard Man....(family name is broken as other
Sol Moses...no other details
I found the tombstone of Zitta Samuels, a 15 month
old child that passed away in Shanghai in 1940. No
Jewish symbols on the stones so I am not sure if it
is a Jewish one. Do you have any idea? Did you know
Samuels Family in Shanghai?
After collecting those stones we wish to restore
them and to present them in Shanghai, in a book and
a website, so any information can be good for that
I heard that the Moses had a big house and gardens
in the former Av. Heige. Do you remember the house
number or how to find it? I believe now it is Hua
Shan Road where I live down this road. In the upper
part closer to the centre there are many old beautiful
houses and I wish to know which was the Moses?
The address of the Moses House is: 422 Avenue Haig.
A picture taken in the Moses House Garden of leading
Sephardi Shanghai families appeared in a previous
copy of The Scribe (issue no. 53, page 11) . The Abraham
house was in The Bubbling Well Road, Shanghai.
