" The main Jews in Dalian at early time were Jewish soldiers in Russian army, including Joseph Trumpeldor, who became national hero of Jews afterwards. After the Russian army returned their country after war, some Jewish soldiers remained together with their relatives. People might find graveyards of Russian soldiers in Lvshun. Ever since then, Russian Jews came to Dalian continuously and rapidly increased in number after 1917. Most of them settled down and started business, engaged in the business of fur and leather, western medicine, food, catering, hotel, transportation, chemical industry, etc. Some of the firms were running as branches or agents of large Jewish corporations of Europe and America, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Harbin."
