|Historical||Died in Shanghai. His body was brought to HK about a month later.
Leibovich had been disabled by Parkinson’s Disease for many years before his death and been attended by a former cook of the wartime refugee camp in Shanghai, Goldman reported. His care was made possible by the continuing financial aid of the JDC which began helping the Jews of Shanghai in the late 1930’s. Leibovich, who was born in Russia, came to Shanghai in the 1930’s and operated a business there before and after the war. – Jewish Telegraphic Agency, January 15, 1982
