WALK: Port of Last Resort: Shanghai's Jewish Ghetto

Finished Sun Mar 8, 2020 , 2pm
Jewish Refugee Museum
62 Changyang Lu, near Zhoushan Lu


In the late 1930s, 20,000 European Jews fleeing Nazi Europe made their way to Shanghai, a safe haven when all other doors were closing. In this alien city, they had to make a home and a life in extremely difficult circumstances. Join to explore the history of Shanghai’s Jewish ghetto, and the places where the refugees lived, worked, and played. We’ll also take a look around the neighborhood, which contains what was once Asia’s largest prison, as well as an historic Sea Temple. To book and confirm meeting point: 250rmb for non-members.
