Anti-Semitism is penetrating into China due to the propaganda spread by the refugee monarchists from Russia. Four members of Koltchak’s and Semionov’s armies, now serving in Chinese institutions, are stirring up hatred against the Jews among the Chinese.

A recent case in a Harbin factory revealed the propaganda being spread by the Russian monarchists. The factory Sonchosin. the largest Chinese leather factory in Harbin, recently invited European experts to make a study of and prepare a plan for improving the factory system.

The announcement that the factory desired the services of experts appeared in the local papers. When several Jewish experts applied, the Chinese manager of the factory declared: “We can not accept Jews because they are Bolsheviks.” It was revealed that the factory employs many former monarchists who are conducting systematic propaganda against the Jews.

Steps to dispel the false impressions created among the Chinese are being undertaken by the Jewish press, which plans to issue leaflets periodically to enlighten the Chinese and to show the falsity of the monarchists’ propaganda.
