Shanghai Jewish Ghetto tour
Shanghai Jewish Ghetto tour will take you to know another wonderful story of tolerance and coexistence among the peaceful peoples of the world.
When we talk about the history of Jews in the last century, thoughts always focus on the European or American continent, but on the Shanghai Jewish Ghetto tour you will discover a facet totally unknown to the vast majority of people.
Why is there a “Jewish Ghetto” in Shanghai?
A question that we will give an answer on the tour and in addition to discovering a world where Judaism coexisted with totally different beliefs and cultures than usual in Jewish society.
During the second world war, part of the exodus of the Jewish population from Europe has been towards Shanghai, for many reasons.
Shanghai being a city where the French concession was of great importance for nearly a century, although it ended in 1943, made Jews find a temporary home where they can be saved from savage Nazi extermination.
Among the Jewish population were all kinds of people, from wealthy traders to persecuted refugees. The ancient Jewish ghetto area during World War II in Shanghai witnessed numerous legendary stories of love, peace, hope and big dreams.
After the war, most of Europe’s Jewish refugees left Shanghai, but Tilanqiao’s story continued.
So that this memory is not lost over time, a thorough restore was performed to perfectly represent the original image of the old Ghetto.
70 years later, we invite you to stroll through this area, breathe the plena life of ancient Shanghai, feel the entanglement of the years full of events and the quiet life that history leaves behind.
