Why take this tour?

Shanghai accepted Jewish refugees from Europe to escape the Nazi massacre and persecution during World War II, and set up a "Noah's Ark" for them. For the Jews ,Shanghai was a warm home.In the "designated area for stateless refugees", there were nearly 20,000 Jewish refugees who lived in harmony with the local residents. This area is the only historical district in China that can reflect the life of Jewish refugees during World War II.In this tour we will lead you to know little-known history by visiting Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum(Ohel Moshe Synagogue),Huoshan park, winding back alleys that once housed Jewish immigrant population,Jewish districts—known as “Little Vienna,”Joint Distribution Committee, Xiahai Temple(a buddhist temple within the Jewish Ghetto )and some other little -known former Jewish sites as well as hearing fascinating stories about their lives from your professional local guide.
