The Werner von Boltenstern Shanghai Photograph and Negative Collection consists of negatives and photographs of Jewish refugees
from Nazi-ruled Europe living in Shanghai, China.
Werner von Boltenstern (1904-1978) was born in Berlin, Germany, and earned two doctorates. He also developed a keen interest
in photography and postcards. A world traveler after the end of the Great War in 1918, von Boltenstern took numerous photographs
of the places he visited, and is probably responsible for the photographs in the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Collection. He is,
at least, responsible for collecting them.
