Chapter Summary

The Jews, who accounted for only three per cent of the whole population of Harbin, were engaged in businesses such as fur, construction materials, grain and soybeans. Twenty-one delegates representing the Jewish communities of Harbin, Mukden, Dairen, Hailar, Tsitsihar, Tientsin and Kobe as well as about five hundred Jews of the local community of almost five thousand in Harbin attended the conference. The German Government was obviously displeased with Japan's official involvement in the Far Eastern Jewish National Conference. Ishiwara Kanji, who played a central role in the Manchurian Incident together with General Itagaki, was an ardent proponent of the Manchurian development plan. The Jewish card which was expected to attract American capital to the development of Manchukuo and also to improve the American public's image of Japan, was no longer necessary since Japan took sides with the Fascist camp.
