Sir Ellice Victor Sassoon, 3rd Baronet, GBE (20 December 1881 - 13 August 1961) was a businessman and hotelier from the Sassoon banking family. Sir Victor Sassoon walked with the aid of two sticks as the result of injuries in World War I in which he served in the Royal Flying Corps. He succeeded to the Baronetcy on the death of his father Edward Elias Sassoon in 1924. He had no issue, and the Baronetcy became extinct on his death. He lived in Shanghai as a wealthy bon vivant who worked tirelessly to protect Western interests in the Orient and helped European Jews survive in the Shanghai Ghetto. He founded the Cathay Hotel (now the Peace Hotel) but left under increasing Japanese pressure in 1941.
