Overview

Jews played a significant role in Shanghai-china">Shanghai's development through 1949. Many wealthy and successful entrepreneurs lived in the city and ran thriving businesses. From 1933 to 1941, Shanghai accepted over 30,000 Jewish refugees fleeing the Holocaust in Europe. In the Designated Area for Stateless Refugees of Shanghai, about 20,000 Jewish refugees lived harmoniously with local citizens, overcoming numerous difficulties together. By the time the Second World War ended in 1945, most of the Jewish refugees had survived. This tour takes you on the historical trail through Shanghai's Jewish history. In this tour, you will not only visit the Shanghai jewish refugees museum, but also some famous landmark buildings along the Bund area and historical hotels in town.
