This marriage certificate from the Jewish Community of Shanghai was issued to Hugo Landsberger and Ella David, who married on January 30, 1946 in Shanghai, although this certificate says February 3, 1946. The certificate is printed in German by The Shanghai Publishers.

Hugo Landsberger and Ella David were born in Berlin in 1894 and 1886 respectively. They arrived separately in Shanghai in 1939 to escape the Nazi regime in Germany. Shanghai had no restrictions on immigration at the time, providing refuge for some 20,000 European Jews.

The David family immigrated to the US in 1947, along with Hugo and Ella Landsberger.
