The Jewish Neighborhood
Time & Location
About the Event
The eastern part of Hongkou used to be a place for workers and refugees from all over the world. Many Jewish refugees came here as well.
The first group came from Russia and created a small community with shops and a synagogue to worship. When Hitler started his anti-semitic campaign in the 1930s, thousands of refugees from Europe fled to Shanghai. Why here? We will hear their stories, see where they started new lives, and learn how they made the best out of their situation.
Dive into the past with Maja von dem Bongart from Shanghai-Art-Walks and learn about this fascinating story that you would not expect in Shanghai.
