Rate this:

The Tilanqiao neighborhood of the Hongkew district in Shanghai, China had become in the mid-1940s, as a result of European discrimination against the Jews, a Noah's ark for sheltering Jews and contained a large number of elite Jewish people from Central Europe, endowing it with cultural prestige. This illustrated collection of remembrances, and history of the neighborhood's contemporary reconstruction, puts the Shanghai Jewish experience into multiple perspectives. Due to its historical and cultural position, and its historic architectural style, the Hongkew Ghetto has been listed as one of twelve historical and cultural areas in Shanghai¿the smallest in geographical size yet holding an outsized historical legacy.
