Jewish Sites and Duolun Road Tour Private Tour

The individual stories of heroism and survival were absorbing. The crowded living conditions similar to the lower east side of NYC. We had the opportunity to walk inside an existing building. This site is a must for anyone with a Jewish heritage. ...Alan Z., USA – See more reviews

At the beginning of World War II, about 30,000 Jewish refugees fled from Europe to Shanghai. Calling themselves "Shanghailanders", most settled in the Hongkou District where the local residents kindly offered food and medicine for these displaced people. The Jewish community thrived in the Hongkou. Bakeries, stores, cafes, synagogues, schools, clinics, cemeteries, and even a Jewish newspaper all flourished there.

Built in 1927, the Ohel Moishe Synagogue served as the spiritual heart of Shanghai's Jewish community and currently houses the Museum for Jewish Refugees. It has been reconstructed to its original appearance and features a photo exhibition from the period. On this tour you will also visit Huoshan Park, a peaceful retreat where the Monument in Memory of Jewish Refugees now stands.

Duolun Road is also a must-see stop because of the history, culture and humanity of 1920s-30s Shanghai. You will wander among the museums, antique and curio houses, calligraphers and painters studios, bookshops and literary clubs, teahouses and wine bars.
