Title: The Fugu Plan : The Untold Story of the Japanese and the Jews During World War II
Description: United Kingdom, Paddington Press. 1979, First Edition. (ISBN: 0709207751) Hard Cover with dust jacket, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. "The Untold Story of the Japanese and the Jews During World War Two is a powerful narrative which follows a group of these refugees throughout their journey across Stalin's Russia, their experiences in Japan, and their struggle for survival in an Asian ghetto. Interwoven with this moving saga are the details of an astounding top-secret plan to create an "Israel in Asia" under Japanese control by offering displaced European Jews a safe haven in Manchuria in return for the financial and technical skills they would bring to this outpost of the Japanese Empire. Although this so-called "Fugu Plan" would founder with Japan's entry into the Tripartite Pact with Nazi Germany and Italy in 1940, its legacy, as the Holocaust swept over Europe, was the survival of thousands of Jews issued Japanese transit visas and given wartime refuge in Asia. That they survived at all is testimony to the courage of many individuals, both Japanese and Jews, and to the seeds planted by the unlikely vision of The Fugu Plan. An important and vital addition to the Judaic studies collection about an almost unknown aspect of the holocaust experience."
