Hugo Landsberger and Ella David married in Shanghai on January 30, 1946. In addition to a ketubbah, a Jewish marriage contract, they had a Chinese certificate, which they signed in German.

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.
