Mike Medavoy’s family was already settled in Shanghai among the Jewish emigrés who had escaped pogroms in Russia during the mid-1900s. This group offered assistance to the waves of refugees fleeing the Nazis during WWII. His boyhood in Shanghai inspired Medavoy — who eventually became a successful and well-known Hollywood movie producer, responsible for some of the most iconic films of our times.
