Wartime Jewish Ghetto Walking Tour

Wartime Jewish Ghetto Walking Tour

Why there is a "Jewish Ghetto" in Shanghai?

From wealthy merchants to persecuted refugees, the former Jewish Ghetto area during WWII in Shanghai witnessed numerous legendary stories of love, peace, hope and great dreams. After the war, most Jewish refugees from Europe left Shanghai, but the story of Tilanqiao continued. Green and red bricks, semicircular vaults, floors and floors of accented door frames…this brick by brick, tree by tree restoration perfectly matches the original.
70 years later, we invite you to stroll through this area, breathe in the full life of old Shanghai, feel the interlacing of eventful years and quiet life that history leaves behind…
